Positively Speaking: Patricia's Perspective

                  The Importance of Rest
This is the month where we move from summer activities to activities of the fall, particularly going back to school and back to work after vacations.

Even though there is more leisure time in the summer for many of us, there are those of us who are busy doing, running, meeting our schedules and those of our families. When the schedules take over our day, we wonder where the time went. So many times we do not stop until we have to and then we feel depleted.

Awareness is the key. There is a phrase coined by author and psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Siegel. “If we can name it, we can tame it.” When we are aware, we can pay attention to those signals of moving too fast, doing too much and overloading our system, before it starts to break down. Often our warning signals get overridden by the activity.

It’s not until we have to rest and reflect that we see what has happened. And that rest is so important to build up our reserves again and to reflect on how we can make changes. Stress affects our body, mind and spirit and we need time to recuperate.

Depending on how run down we feel, healing can take some time. This is a challenge for those of us who are used to having busy schedules. We need to pace ourselves and stop when we feel tired or have low energy.

There are so many ways to take care of ourselves. When we are not feeling our best selves, it’s time to pause and rest.

Rest helps to restore and replenish our bodies, spirits and minds. So before we go back to school, or work or other place we return to after the summer, let’s take the time to rest our bodies, clear our minds and calm our emotions. Then we can move into the fall feeling rejuvenated.
