“Wisdom is knowing when to REST, when to have activity, and how much of each to have.” Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

We are ALL busy with life and by now have probably realized that “doing” and “living” can be exhausting. We are so busy giving and doing for others, we forget about our wants and NEEDS and that can be unhealthy and dangerous. We get so caught up in “living” that we forget to appreciate the beauty of life itself. At times, we all may feel overwhelmed and stressed out. That’s why it’s so important to care for and love ourselves. Loving ourselves is when we continuously give ourselves- our minds, our bodies, and our spiritual selves-the MUCH NEEDED REST that they so desperately NEED and deserve. MUCH NEEDED REST is more than our nightly hours of sleep. It’s a type of REST that involves our whole being NOT just our bodies. The importance of some MUCH NEEDED REST shouldn’t be taken lightly. Do you make time for some MUCH NEEDED REST? How? If you don’t, you should. It’s imperative that we regularly renew and refresh our minds, our bodies, and our spirit because all three require constant attention and regular maintenance. But, maintenance can only be acquired by getting the MUCH NEEDED REST that we NEED and deserve. Are you in need of some MUCH NEEDED REST? I just got some but know I WILL NEED some more in about 3 months!! So for this week’s blog, let’s talk SHIP about the importance of getting some MUCH NEEDED REST!!!

    You make such a good point, Valerie.  I was fortunate to learn to literally schedule in family, friends, and so on.  I never had the good sense to schedule in REST, thanks for the eye-opener.

    Nice Post Valerie.  Rest is very important for your mind and body.  If you don't take care of them they won't take care of you.  People are busy it seems more so not than even in past. Also the times we are living through now, I'm sure, have caused even extra pressure on people.  It's imperative that try to stay as positive as possible.  And to do that you will have be well rested.

      I agree.  I am a master of chillaxin but it is a skill that must be nurtured and I so every chance I get.
