Here’s a tip for how to make your life better and more meaningful: take some time off!  Give yourself some permission to rest when tired. We all need to realize that these bodies we live in, a complex interaction of our physical bodies, our minds, our emotions and our spirits, are inextricably connected.  We were not intended to work without rest, which eventually will shut down the best of us.

God said each week take a Sabbath.  For Christians, it says Jesus often withdrew to be alone and pray.  Every study shows the need to not only set boundaries but to get your sleep, every night!

Someone once said that if you don’t come apart, you’ll come apart.  Someone else once said that if you burn the candle at both ends you’re not as bright as you think you are.

Give yourself permission to rest!  Believe me, the world and all our problems will be there when we return.
