It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting so you can be recharged for the upcoming week.
So how do you know if you are adequately rested? If you have these symptoms then it might be time to rest a little extra. (Now this is for when you are physically working out, but a lot can be said for this mentally as well.)
- You are excessively sore.
- You have a nagging pain.
- You feel “off”.
- You are losing enthusiasm.
- You are fatigued.
You also need to know the difference between planned and unplanned rest periods. A planned period is when you block off time to rest. An unplanned period is when your body needs rest and “yells” at you. This can be done with any of the symptoms listed above being exhibited.
So I would encourage you to listen to your body so you know when to plan your rest periods. I know since I have been listening I have fewer unplanned ones.
