Everything I read about a balanced life
stresses the importance of rest.
Just the thought of rest stresses me out!
I’m too busy to REST!
Depending on the season, I have a family to take care of, kids to shuttle, pets to clean up after, a house to run, meals to plan, groceries to buy, food to prepare, laundry to wash, dry, fold, iron and put away. I have a full time job, meetings to attend, cars to maintain, books to read, a blog to write and a sidewalk to shovel.
I don’t have time to rest!
I’m sure it does.
The fact is, that you need to rest as much as you need to breathe.
Truth be told,
REST IS WORK FOR ME!
I come from a long line of over achieving women who made multitasking an art form.
Rest isn’t something that comes naturally to me.
When I think about rest, something inside me seizes up.
Somewhere in my conditioning, I started to equate rest with laziness, weakness, and wasted time.
