daily inspiration: balancing work and rest (1 of 2)

Posted on: March 18, 2011

In the United States especially, we’re really good at work. People in most other countries take far more vacation time (4-6 weeks per year), while many in the good ol’ USA are stuck with a measly two. Really??

Now, sure, some people need a little push to really get things moving. But most of us simply need more rest. And, if you don’t take it, that’s typically when our bodies give out.

When I’m sick (like today), I take it as a mixed blessing. No, it’s not fun, and I’d prefer to be healthy. Yet being sick forces me to pay deep attention to my body’s needs and rhythms, which I just might have been ignoring. That cup of tea or coffee just covers up how much you need to rest, you know?

Action: Pay attention to what your body is telling you. If it says to rest, go rest. And enjoy it!
