You wanna hear something that will blow your mind? The command of rest is just as much a part of the Ten Commandments as the command about murder. Or adultery.
“Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest” (Exodus 34:21).
Did you catch that? Even in your busy season, you are commanded to find rest. And that is not a suggestion.
Here’s my plan.
- Rest one day a week.
- Rest one hour a day.
- Rest a few minutes every hour.
Recovery Step: Rest is as much a part of recovery as anything you actually do. So try it. Give life a rest.
