We all stress the importance of hard work and giving life your 100%. But, how important is it to rest? Or, better yet, how much should you rest. Loke a lot of things, the bible addresses this subject with a formula…6 days labor, one day of rest. It seems that nowadays we have expanded that to 2 days of rest (the weekend).
But, the original formula is pretty good. If you work too long without rest, you risk burning out. If you rest too much, you risk being unproductive and suffering for a good chunk of your life. It’s like a plant needing sun and water in order to grow. We don’t really question or challenge the importance of this method. Yet, when it comes to our own lives and time tested principles, we don’t value the details. Give it your all, but take (the proper) time to rest and reflect. You will be amazed at your results.
