A body in motion stays in motion… Taking time to rest while training is probably more difficult for me than getting up and working out! The trick is having days off scheduled along with your workouts. Over training is as bad as under training. Finding a happy medium where you can get optimal performance without injury or fatigue is difficult.
Life is also a workout – We need to have Rest-Stops along the way so we can be at our best for our families, our jobs and for ourselves. Resting mindfully, not just taking a day off from working out or work, but finding a way to recuperate mentally and physically. Reading something spiritual, listening to good music, cooking a healthy meal, meditation… All ways we engage our senses and replenish our body/mind.
There isn’t music without rests, its just one note. So let your life be a symphony write in the rests…
