Undervalued Rest

As a society, we really undervalue rest. Everyone must always be busy. This doesn’t matter if you are sick or well. This doesn’t matter who you are, you must always have something to do. Resting, really resting and just taking a break isn’t considered productive.

From a health care provider’s perspective, rest is one of the most important things you can do. Rest allows your body to heal after the assaults of a busy day or busy week. Rest can help heal stress. Rest is important. After a good diet, rest can be the most important and loving thing you can do for your body.

Find time to just do nothing for awhile. Read a book you’ve been thinking you wanted to read. Watch the birds. Enjoy.
