"The best time to relax is when you don't have the time."
The best time to relax is when you don't have the time. I don't know about you, but I don't have the time - most of the time.
Everyone seems to be very busy these days. We feel tugged between work, maintaining a home, shopping, cooking, errands, the kids' activities, and various other responsibilities and commitments. Truthfully, who has time left to relax? On my busiest and most scheduled days, I run through life at full throttle, so fast and furious I find I even talk faster than usual. What about you?
The best time to relax is when you don't have the time. I got this quote from a church marquee. It's truly a quote worth contemplating since it's through relaxation and rest that we refresh the soul and rejuvenate the spirit – a recharge that is critically needed in our most demanding and hectic moments. Nothing or no one continues at peak performance and indefinitely without stopping on occasion. Even God took time to rest (Genesis 2:2).
The best time to relax is when you don't have the time. I hope you will join me in trying hard to slow down and take that needed downtime. While this won't be easy because of all the real and perceived demands of our time, it's certainly an effort worth waging. What ideas or suggestions do you have for finding the time to relax?
