Being Restponsible*

There’s something I need you to know.

I wrote this as a reminder to myself a little while back. Focus on rest when you can, my friends. It's hard but it's worth it.

When you’re tired you need rest.

Not just sleep, but times when you are awake but not working, when you are actively restoring yourself.

It’s not ‘being lazy.’ It’s being responsible for your own well-being.

Needing to rest is like needing to breathe – it’s a fact of life.

Humans are meant to work, play, and rest in cycles. We aren’t meant to push ourselves until we collapse.

I understand that you HAVE to do so very many things but whenever you can create/take the opportunity to rest, I’m hoping that you will take it. Guilt-free.

If anyone gives you any crap about it, send them to me.

*Restponsible is a word coined by my fellow word-warrior Michel Daw. I’m honoured that he let me borrow it. Thanks, Michel!
