It's okay to rest when you need it. There are different ways to rest depending on what your mind, body, or soul needs.
Sometimes rest means:
*turning off all technology and sitting in silence, writing in your journal, or reading a book
*choosing to stay quiet instead of engaging in debate or superficial dialogue
*putting off to tomorrow the unimportant things that you don't have the energy to do today
*saying no to social invitations and choosing to stay home instead
*lying around and doing nothing for awhile
*refraining from making future commitments until you know for sure you want to do it and will have the energy to
*opting for time in nature instead of late nights out
*going to bed earlier than usual or sleeping in later
*not responding to messages right away
*taking a break from the news, social media, or any other kind of technology that wears you down or frustrates you
We don't have to be doing something ALL the time. We don't have to fill our calendars 24/7. We don't have to be our most productive self EVERY day.
Our body, our mind, and our soul needs moments of quiet, stillness, and rest.
Tune in to your own body. What kind of rest are YOU craving right now?
