With day after day of tips on how to fit more into your day, I didn’t want to leave out an essential part of the productiveness picture: REST.
You cannot live your life at a full throttle speed for long without burning out.
We were made to rest. God commands us to rest. “Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest” (Exodus 34:21)
Even during the most busy periods of your life take time each day to rest. Rest acts like a battery recharger. It charges us up so that we can return once again to our work fully rejuvenated and ready to attack it at a steady pace.
These rest times don’t have to be long. I find most days, 3 ten minute breaks each day works for me. Other days I take an hour to craft and watch Netflix.
What you do with your time will differ from mine. We are all made unique.
I like putting my feet up, sip some hot tea, and scrolling through Facebook.
My husband likes sipping his hot tea and catching up with the news on his kindle fire.
Perhaps you like to curl up and read a few pages of a book, or retreat to a quiet spot and close your eyes a few minutes. Perhaps its a 30 minute TV show at the end of the day after all the little ones are in bed.
Discover it, take it and enjoy it. REST.
