I talked to my coach this morning. She challenged me to look at how I rest. That's right...rest!
My tendency is to keep going until I can't any more. Rest consists of sitting down--reading a book, playing a computer game, watching a movie, or doing nothing--until my internal battery recharges enough that I can get up and go again. Sometimes I sit there worrying about all the things I am not getting done.
But what if Rest were my plan? What if I were to rest with intention? What if I were to rest before my battery ran down completely? Would that feel different? I'm betting it would.
I invite you to take the challenge with me. Then tell me how it works for you. I'd love to hear.
(I took this picture at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden a few weeks ago when I went there with a friend from out of town. We had a wonderful restful visit.)
