Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. — Ovid
I've been over-scheduling myself. My body (wiser than my mind) is telling me to rest, so that's what I'm doing. I used to fight the urge to lay around... Too Much To Do!
One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important. —Bertrand Russell
Now, I surrender to relaxation whenever I can because, quite simply, it's good for me! But it's not always easy. Even as a child, my mother would ask me, Why do you have to do so much? I thought it was an odd question.
During periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight. — Fritjof Capra
Always something to look forward to!
Put your feet up. Close your eyes. Inhale. Let yourself do nothing. Resting is one of my most favorite things to practice.
Enjoy this critical part of living and the creative process.
