Studying Rest

Kootenay Lake, British Columbia

At the end of my last blog post on being quarantined on Christmas day I wrote,

In 2016, I am going to prioritize rest.

And now, on January 7th less than 10 days into the year, I’m realizing I don’t know what exactly that would mean.  There are some things I can do that are straight-forward, make sure I get enough sleep, not fill my calendar completely full.  But other parts of rest feel more elusive.

How can I live a more restful life?  How can I bring rest into the work I have to do? What activities give me energy so I’m not drained at the end of the day? What is the difference between being tired and being drained?

I stand by my focus on prioritizing rest in my life in 2016.  But I’m realizing if I’m going to successfully prioritize it, I’m going to have to study it first.
