Back to the gym.

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.

Happy Crafting!

Resting sometimes means stretching.

I have been going to the gym pretty consistently for the last year.  I am not saying this to get accolades, but I have learned something in the process.  You must rest.  On most rest days between workouts I don’t just sit idle, I stretch.  After tearing down my muscles through a workout I stretch to get back in alignment and ease some of the tightness  or tension.

How does this relate to crafting?  I would encourage you to stretch.  Make sure you are trying something new so you are stretched.  Keep your brain active.  Do different techniques so you keep your ideas fresh.

What will you learn today?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,
