Guard your Rest

June 29, 2007

The society we live in seems determined to pack as much as possible into every day – work, recreation, family time, good deeds – everything, it seems, but rest and relaxation.

Our hectic lifestyles seem shortsighted in light of the fact that physicians say rest enhances the enjoyment and effectiveness of all our other efforts.

Rest, both physical and mental, will render you more alert, more productive, more efficient, and less irritable – in a word, happier!

Use it as a baseline for all your other activities.

Your body will thank you for it.


HaveΒ a restful weekend!

    I too must pay more attention to rest, and sleep.. Burning the candle at both ends will only get you so far, but in the long run, no more light earlier..

    Precisely, LB.. anyway, do try & rest well this weekend. πŸ™‚

    if you don’t believe in god, believe in rest!

    and if you believe in God, know that God rested on the 7th day!


    Stev, I believe in God.
    Hence, you know what I do on the 7th day. πŸ˜‰
