Don’t let society or social media trick you out of slowing down and resting. Don’t buy into the hustle culture.
When we slow down, our body and mind can work together to heal in a more effective way.
By slowing down and taking the time to heal by resting, we can help prevent physical illnesses as well as mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. We can also help ourselves heal from life’s everyday stresses by taking the time to pause and reflect on what is most important in life.
Taking the time to rest can offer a whole range of benefits from improved moods, increased energy levels, better sleep patterns, and improved concentration. By investing in our own well-being through healing by resting, we can make sure that we are best prepared for whatever life throws at us.
In a world where we are constantly striving for more, slowing down and taking time to rest has become so important. When we take time to rest, our bodies are able to heal and rejuvenate. Resting gives us a chance to release stress, relax our muscles and clear our minds.
So sis, consider this a sign to put on your out-of-office message, book the vacation or simply just catch up on some sleep. We need our rest, figuratively and literally. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
Rest is healing, and by no means is it overrated.
