Rest is a very important building block for success. Happy Thoughtful Thursday!
A lot of high achievers tend to feel guilty about taking time to rest, myself included. I’ve talked about this before; if you don’t take time to rest the universe will find a way to make you rest. It’s best to do this on your own terms. It’s something I struggle with, but I’m making a conscious effort to recharge this week.
Even high-performing athletes take time to rest; they usually have a rest day built into their routine. that’s not to say they don’t feel guilty about it from time to time too, I’m sure. Let’s normalize resting, giving ourselves time to process the things that we learn in our lives, recharge from the daily hustle and bustle, and stop ourselves from burning out.
If we don’t take time to rest, we won’t have the energy we need to put towards the things that are more important. We must learn to give ourselves the latitude to take the time we need to just live.
Celebrate Video Game Day
Today is also video game day which is perfect because that is a great chill opportunity so if you’re the kind of person who not only works hard but also likes to play hard this is the perfect time to do so. Blow off some steam and relieve some stress!
So fire up your PC, Mac, or game console of choice or all three, because all are valid; let’s not be a gamer hater. Take some time to play your favorite game or just read a book or watch that TV show you’ve been meaning to catch up on. The point is, take some time for yourself and don’t feel guilty about it.
You deserve some downtime and to have some fun! If you take time to rest, you’ll have the energy you need to be your successful, awesome self!
