DAY 7/10 #deeprest
“Stupid is as stupid does,” and sometimes rest is just rest. As in, my husband and I got very little of it last night. Today’s call to action for deep rest is therefore straightforward: just sleep. And so Brad does. And I try…and try…and fail…and fail.
I give up on napping and settle for letting it be easy all day long. Which means bucking lists, doing only what’s needed from one moment to the next, and moving slow eough for my foggy head to juuuuuust keep in step.
By the end of the day, guess what? I’m still tired, but I’m not “behind.” I’m not “stressed.” I’m just…at ease.
Furthermore, I’ve gained insight into that space between DRIVE and SPIRIT. I had to turn on my drive for karate class and studies this afternoon, no doubt. And I’m glad I had access to it. But then I turned it off…so I could let my body and spirit replenish.
It’s so basic it seems hard to imagine we’d do anything other than be gentle with ourselves when we’re exhausted. But so often we push, deman, strive, go-go-GO. How about this? How about…no-no-NO!
