~Ralph Marston, American writer
Although working hard is key to a successful life, so is the need to rest and renew on a consistent basis. Don’t wait to do so until you are almost on your last leg, so to speak, and exhausted. It is more challenging when you are wiped out to bring back balance and equilibrium. When you are weary, your temper may boil over, your anxiety may start to take over, your fear of the unknown may be fueled, and your passion for life may be dulled. Nothing good comes from working on a deficit of energy. Nothing innovative comes from a person whose emotional or physical bank account has been depleted. So schedule times of rest and renewal as a vital key to a healthy life. Go to the beach, take a walk in nature, get away for the weekend, take time to sit and read a good book, or schedule something that will revitalize your soul. Take a day out of your week to go on a date by yourself, take a weekend and go to the spa to renew your body, or take a week to hang out with friends and just laugh and make wonderful new memories. Make it a habit to rest so that your life maintains a balance that will assist you in experiencing more joy, more life, and richer and more fulfilling personal and familial relationships. Be your own best friend, and lay your foundation for a richer life! Rest and recover—it’s a part of the program.
