Honor the Sabbath – rest more!

I remember growing up as a Christian, we would take Sunday as a day of rest where we would do substantially less work than all the other days. I didn’t totally rest on Sundays because I usually did homework that was due the next day on Monday, but I did usually calm down and relax with family. As time went on, though, I stopped honoring this day of rest and started continuing working without a weekly break. This started to wear me down over time as I was becoming a workaholic without respite. Then I re-instated the day of rest for the first time in quite a few months, maybe years – I can’t tell you how much perspective it gave to how much I had been overworking myself! I also felt like I had the energy to get MORE done during the week when I took some time away. Don’t overwork yourself and make sure to take a rest every week to regroup and contemplate the meaning of your labor.
