I hope you have enjoyed your Labor Day weekend! You may not need much #MondayMotivation today as most of us spent our day relaxing, catching up with friends and family or... RESTING!
In our "go get it today, gotta have it now" culture many of us place a low priority on rest. Often times we don't slow down until age or injury demands it because taking a break with no agenda feels like time wasted. (We won't even discuss poor sleep habits. ) However, from rest and recovery for workouts to stillness for focus and clarity to execute business strategies, rest plays a vital role in successful progression.
Even God, in all of his omnipotence, took a day to cease His creation in Gen. 2:2-3 as a model for us!
REST (refreshing ease or inactivity after exertion of labor) is a requirement in yielding progressive results! Rest is an investment and the perfect time for:
R.ejuvenation - Has the grind handicapped your positive traits and tendencies? Ensure you make time to renew and restore yourself! Here are some of my favorites to rejuvenate:
E.valuation - THIS is key! When you rest, ceasing from your activity, it gives you the opportunity to assess if you're spending your energy in the proper place. Are your actions manifesting His will or continuing down the dead end of your wants?
S.tillness - Inactivity is oftentimes the best activity. Psalm 46:10
T.ime - God took an entire day, and many times, even on the Sabbath, we are still cramming work in. Try it this week!!!! Join me in taking time to cease from your labor, truly REST and share your results!
Don't let this weekend be the only time you kick back and relax, make it a habit to incorporate some rest time in your daily schedule!
