With all the busyness of the holiday season I wanted to really touch base on resting your mind.
So what is active rest?
While the term might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a real requirement for your health and wellbeing.
If you’ve heard about active rest at all, it’s probably in the context of physical exercise. For example, you rest your legs while you work your arms, or take up swimming for a month if you’re recovering from an injury caused by running.
Active rest can also be applied to other areas of your life. It refers to engaging in a less intense activity or a different kind of activity. It can be anything you do while you’re awake to renew and rejuvenate.
If you feel tired much of the time with no physical cause or you just want more joy out of life, take a look at how you spend your days.
So now the question lies, how do you create active rest in your life.
Providing Active Rest for Your Mind:
Make time each day to slow down and silence the outside world. Remember that active rest makes you more productive. With enough good quality sleep and rest, you’re likely to lead a longer and happier life.
