It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest or re-charge.
And you’re probably reading the headline and shaking your head at me. Going back to the gym is not rest. You are probably wondering if I have lost my mind. Not quite. Keep reading to understand what I am trying to say.
This week I went back to the gym and started focusing on working harder. I went and didn’t just cruise through but actually worked until I felt I could give no more. So the rest in between workouts this week was very sweet.
But I also found with that rest was responsibility. In order for my muscles to grow and to rid itself of the toxins I needed to eat well and drink water.
What I would like to remind you of is that rest is so sweet after you have worked hard and to rest well.
It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and re-charge. By allowing your body and mind to rest your thoughts are more free. This will allow you to dream.
I know when I am able to clear my head then things become more defined. I am able to focus on my priorities and maybe even figure out new ones.
I know when Joel (hubby) had gotten sick and I was forced to take a couple of weeks off from the finance business it became clear that we were not supposed to be there any longer. When you are stuck in the daily grind your focus often gets obscured. Make sure to not get so ingrained in the daily routine that you can’t see what life should look like.
It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and re-charge. I don’t know about you but I need this day. I need a day to focus on me. Just one though.
Today I found a video that I really like that talks about being busy versus productive. And when you find yourself getting busy how to change it to being productive. It’s all about slowing down and consolidating things. Believe it or not, it’s about doing less instead of more.
It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to get some rest, break from the routine, and just have some fun.
So for today I slept in, will actually cook some breakfast (and not just grab something), and then head off to the movies tonight to escape for just a bit. I believe Spiderman is on the screen tonight. I think my favorite movie of all time is the Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, or the Wizard of Oz. What’s yours?
It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting and re-charging. We talk a bunch about self care on this day, but have you ever thought that getting dirty might be what you need? Grab a few plants from the local nursery and get some dirt under those nails.
Recently I have read a few articles that talk about feeling disconnected or out of sync. One of the common suggestions is to either walk barefoot to ground yourself or to dig in a garden to connect with the earth.
So maybe what you need is to plant some roses and then take some time to smell them later.
It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on rest and re-charging. We often talk about resting which in my mind means to get some extra sleep. While this is a good thing you also have to remember to unpack your mind. Your mental well-being is as important as your physical. Often your mental can be more important as it impacts your physical well-being also.
Unpacking your mind could mean you go to the gym, go for a walk, just stare at a wall and do nothing, meditate, yoga, yell, and much more. This list is left to your imagination. Pick whatever works for you so that you keep your sanity and well-being.
