Sometimes, I just have to accept that my day’s productivity will consist of mental and physical rejuvenation (e.g. resting around all day), as opposed to standard ideas of ‘being productive’. There can be a hundred things I want to accomplish on a day off of work. However, if that day comes at the end of a long stream of busy, filled, tiring work days, then I might just need to postpone all 100 tasks. Otherwise, I won’t even make it through the day.
I want a lifestyle where I balance out these tasks and this rest in a beautiful, perfect combination of activity and rejuvenation. I think there is true value in having a day of rest in every week. The religions really got that one right. No joke, yo.
