Rest to Recover
Working hard is admirable and certainly encouraged in our society - 7 days a week, smart phone on at all times, always accessible and hustling. However, a constant state of busyness and distraction leads to burn out, stress, and most importantly, poor decision making. Our lives are defined by our decisions, and good ones require time and thinking - not working and scrolling - so we have to carve out time for Rest and Reflection - it isn't wasted time - it is crucial time spent. Too much rest, body or mind, leads to atrophy - so the answer isn't to NOT work(or even think that is something to aspire to) - its to find that sweet spot between self torture and self indulgence. Take a break. Zoom out and Think. Today.
