It Takes The Right Kind Of Rest To Recuperate
If you are feeling stressed and tired, you might find moving a little R&R to the top of your to-do list is all you need to do!
Rest. Sound familiar?
Do you even remember the last time you had some, like really had some?
Lack of rest can lead to all sorts of complications, not just tiredness, which is when you are more likely to reach out for a pill,or blame a bigger,
more complex situation for how you feel.
In all likeliness, all you need to do is to switch off.
The perils of a rest-less life
If you do too much, sleep to little – you can pretty much guarantee you’ll be tired, but the knock-on effects of a life with insufficient rest multiply. You’ll start off by being more susceptible to coughs and colds, and if you don’t listen to your body at that point and get some forced rest, you’ll become prone to more serious conditions.
Rest is the only state the body can heal itself in – but what is rest?
Rest isn’t watching TV, but sitting daydreaming, being creative, reading, meditating, going for gentle walks.
To fully relax it is a good idea to switch all electronics off, and to feel even greater benefits it is good to meditate. Meditation encourages the whole body to rest, restore and rejuvenate.
Emotional trauma past or present, or anxiety about future events can block our ability to rest. If your emotions are getting in the way of you getting the relaxation you need in your life, find someone who can help – your mind, body and soul deserve it!
