This week, we encourage rest.
Tomorrow’s summer solstice is a perfect reminder to take a moment and mark the change. The sun will appear to stand still before reversing its direction and that is the message from nature.
Multitasking is so celebrated in our modern world that we rarely even notice when one task is completed and the next is begun. We move quickly from one to the next and rarely take the time to take a breath.
Rest is an important item for every to-do list.
Without it, we risk burnout, illness and just plain crabbiness.
You may (or not) have noticed that I took a rest and didn’t publish last week.
Pushing on without rejuvenating leaves us tired, worn out and prone to mistakes that will slow is down even more than had we slowed down and rested up.
In my case, a perfect holiday led to a week of near-perfect exhaustion.
It is time to bring ourselves to a full stop for a bit.
What is your solstice?
