Rest: Giving A Body A Break
For those of you who missed my regular post on Monday, I apologize. I have been doing something important since Saturday.
I have been resting.
After months of not only burning the candle at both ends, but also looking for extra wicks to burn that same candle more brightly, my body has been saying “enough, slow down,” for the last two weeks.
I haven’t been listening.
And, so, on Saturday, my body took control. Without plan or forethought on my part, I napped. In that “I lay down to read a book and woke up several hours later” way, I napped. And, I napped on and off for the next four days.
My ‘to do’ list is too long, my commitments are more than my time available. Something has to give.
These naps have been my wake-up call.
If I won’t take care of my body, my body will take care of me.
