We are hard workers, and many of us are workaholics in fact. We produce and create for our companies and families. We are there for loved ones in need and take care of all the details, so that's why I'd like to stop to praise the counterpart to all that work, rest.
I confess I'm not very good at resting because I'm not good at feeling bored. I can barely get through ten pages of a book because I get restless and start thinking of things I can do to produce like cooking, cleaning, or working on something. Sometimes the only way I can rest is if I schedule it in and resting is the task I'm meant to accomplish. Other times, I work myself so hard that I get kicked own and can't pull myself away from the sofa in some form of forced rest in hopes of avoiding illness.
When I do rest I like to rest in a few different ways.
