- Time for Rest -|
What kind of rest do you get on a regular basis? And what, in your opinion, constitutes, the best kind of rest?
There are a lot of people who feel guilty about resting. But resting is so essential to maintain productivity and creativity in our lives. People who work hard but do not rest, are living as if riding a thoroughbred without a bridle. It is, in other words, an extremely dangerous proposition. People cannot live under constant pressure. We need to know when to tighten and when to loosen the reins.
What is surprising, is that things tend to go much smoother once you've had some rest. Just like repeatedly sowing the land for harvest year after year without any rest, actually diminishes the land's productivity, so too is man.
So, I'd like to recommend a number of ways to enjoy some good rest.
First of all, get away and cut off any ties from your everyday responsibilities in order to rest. Either go away on a trip, or meet someone new or something. Such novel experiences are great for escaping your every day.
That may be why so many people who are looking to get away and get some rest are coming to Iria.
Secondly, during your rest, you should be doing something that you really enjoy. Some people say that they need to go back to work because what they really enjoy doing is work, but that is not what I mean.
Just look back at how things were when you were a child. I'm sure that you have experience having a great time just playing because you were purely having fun.
There are a lot of people who claim that they have no time to rest.
In conclusion, if you claim that you have no time to get any rest, I would like to tell you that you must make the time to rest.
Rest is so crucial in life, more important than a lot of things. Trust me, resting is not just for fools.
