Rest is not just naps.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on rest to recharge for the week.

I know as soon as I say rest many of you think of a nap. But that is not all there is to rest. Sometimes rest is doing something different to break out of the routine so you feel refreshed.

Well, lately I have been back to the gym (since it is open again) and I have felt incredibly sore. Since it had been a year that the gym had been closed I don’t feel too bad. I kept up on running but not on the weight and lifting part. My point is this. When you feel sore sometimes you need to just become best friends with the couch. Other times you need to move differently to engage your muscles.

Here are some ideas for recovery workouts:

  • Yoga
  • Go for a walk
  • Stretch

The goal is just to move a bit.

And some of you are saying but I don’t work out. What does this have to do with my life? Why are we talking about working out when this is a blog about crafting?

My point is this, every once in a while do something to stretch yourself. Do something to keep moving. Complete a crossword puzzle. Play a game with the kids. Basically, take a break from the routine so you can feel refreshed. And, as far as crafting, if you feel stuck in a rut you won’t feel very creative.

I hope this finds you well. Share with me how you break out of your routine to keep things fresh and moving.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
