Schedule Rest - (Monster Duel Riddle, How to Blog, etc...)

Savvy Saturdays (10/23/21)

Savvy Idea: Blocking out time to rest ensures you will be able to have energy amidst the never-ending list of tasks life throws at you.

We live in a world where busyness is a badge of honor to wear.

No one really has time to take a “break” and there seems no end to do, do, do.

But busyness is a dangerous rhythm to have.

It can become a symptom of laziness, ineffectiveness, or an inability to prioritize.

Rather than allowing busyness to take over our lives, it’s important to schedule rest.

We can only do as much as the energy we have, and rest is one of the best ways to have more energy to be focused on what needs to be done.

Set aside time to do the things you need to do to rejuvenate energy.

  • Take a small nap, post-lunch.

  • Add in a walk in the middle of the day.

  • Read a book in the quietness of the morning or night.

You don’t want your body to force you to rest by shutting down.

There will always be an endless bucket of tasks that need to be completed, so rest will always need to be prioritized.

By blocking out time to rest, you will have more energy to take care of important things you need to do.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • Will you ever find a time where you will find an end to your list of tasks?

  • When would be the best time for you to schedule rest?
