Sometimes, I feel uneasy when few or no commitments are on my agenda for the day. I wonder, “Could I be doing more? Is my life not exciting enough?” There is this tugging pressure I feel to maintain activity and be “productive”. Yet, when I don’t make time for rest, I don’t feel like my best self. I’m not recharged. I don’t have the energy to pursue my goals wholeheartedly. My emotions can even become fogged.
Conveniently enough, my car is down and out this weekend. I will have plenty of time to chill as a result. Maybe, I’ll watch reruns of The Office, finally finish reading Harry Potter book #5, and take amazing naps. Hopefully, I will rest without feeling guilty and remember that relaxing, too, is purposeful.
