Rush. Rush. Rush.
Summer is coming to an end, and with it comes the back-to-school craze. Driving the kids here. Racing across town there. Grocery shopping. Bill paying. Cooking. Cleaning. Laundry. Work. To-do lists. Errands. Doctor’s appointments.
It’s seems like we can never get a moment to breathe. We run ourselves ragged, miss out on much-needed sleep, and often over-commit. In this 9 to 5 society of non-stop GO, sometimes it’s truly necessary to force ourselves to s-l-o-w-d-o-w-n.
When was the last time you carved out some precious time for some of the following stress-relieving, relaxing, and enjoyable activities?
Maybe these seem childish, or perhaps this list seems like whimsical dreaming. But maybe, just maybe, this list can inspire some therapeutic ideas for simple and enjoyable living.
Whatever it is that clears your mind, soothes your heart, and relaxes your body… it’s very important that you find time for it.
We keep going… and going… and going. We get depressed. We stress out. We destroy our physical and mental health. We are TIRED; all the time.
That to-do list can be put aside from time to time. It will always be there, pressuring us to extend ourselves beyond our limits.
Today, let’s take some time to enjoy life. Let’s be kind to ourselves.
And tomorrow? We will be well-rested. We will feel refreshed and ready to tackle that to-do list. We can accomplish more.
It will be worth it.
God created that day of rest for a reason. He knew it was necessary…
