Rest is as Important as Work

There seems to be a badge of honor for working a lot of hours, and seven days a week, and stressing out over what needs to get done, what didn't get done well.

But I want you to stop and think about working.

As far as I can read in my research, from the Bible to business books and anywhere else, we were never designed to work and work and work and work and work.

Now we are supposed to work. We're not supposed to live off the government bailouts, but we're supposed to work.

But you're also supposed to rest.

I've been reading a lot of books on resting, relaxation, and meditation because it's important.

When we rest, our bodies get an opportunity to slow down and regroup.

So if you are not purposely resting every single day, I want you to do what the kids
used to say. I'm not cool anymore so I can say this: "You had better check yourself before you wreck yourself."

Rest is important. Work is important. You need to do both.
