REST: Our bodies need time to heal and repair.
Listen to your body. When you want to sit and be still, sit and be still. Exercise is beneficial for our metabolism but rest is just as beneficial, or more! When our stress hormones become dominant in our bodies our metabolism will suffer. Pushing yourself too far whether it includes exercise, work, family, or friends often backfires. 'OVER'exertion is called that for a reason. It is OVERdone.
Stay in the "just right" zone. A little bit of this and a little bit of that goes a long way. Moderation is key and taking time to rest opens the door to a long and healthy life. There is time for everything.
Rest is not lazy. Rest is smart, sensible, and educated. Rest is awareness.
Cherish yourself and ensure balance to keep your body fueled, powerful, and efficient. To your health...
