Honouring the need for rest

As we navigate the demands of day to day life, stillness and the physical and mental benefits of rest seem to have a low rank on the list of priorities. However, if we fail to honour the need for rest, the quality of our performance, relationships, and wellness will reflect this neglect back to us in a myriad of ways. Where can you find space in your days and weeks to find rest? Sleep (8 hours or a nap?) physical (slow down) , mental (meditation, counselling), sensory (turn off the phone), creative (allow space for inward expression), emotional (time to self-reflect), and spiritual (prayer, silence, meditation, nature walk). I encourage you to welcome the value of rest.
