"Rest is what rejuvenates."
So today, for the last part in this series, I want to take the time to remind you that rest will eventually bring you more energy. We can get so caught up in the “work hard” syndrome, and sometimes this mentality makes us feel like we can’t rest. When we feel like we have so much to get done each day, it’s easy to justify to ourselves that we cannot stop to rest.
Yet I cannot emphasize it enough – rest is vital. Rest is what rejuvenates. When we don’t let ourselves rest in nourishing, frequent and loving ways, our bodies cannot stay healthy. And without healthy bodies, our businesses begin to suffer.
As long as you have exercise in your days, rest is guaranteed to restore your energy levels. Remember, rest is a very important part of the equation. Those rest notes are very, very important. If you are insufficiently rested, there is no way you can give your best in your life or your work.
"I promise you, taking time to relax, however you choose, will bring you more energy."
Remember to use the essential oils that are good for you, if that resonates with you. Or meditate, if that is something that works for you. Most of all, honor yourself. These are simply my ideas, and, just like a yoga pose, you can modify them and make them work for you. Whatever it is, find something that is relaxing to you and at least take some time out of each day to contemplate, rest and de-stress. This may look different day to day, as you honor whatever form of relaxation suits your body and your particular mood for that day.
"More energy will bring you more productivity and ultimately this will add to the bottom line of your business."
More energy will bring you more productivity and ultimately this will add to the bottom line of your business. Your business is like a marathon, it’s not a sprint. To have your business and run it successfully takes solid effort over time, and much stamina is required.
" Your business is like a marathon, it’s not a sprint. To run your business successfully takes solid effort over time."
So rest. Allow yourself rest. Love your body through rest. Honor your rhythms and energy by resting.
