We work hard but we can't go nonstop. We need downtime. Whether
that comes in short periods throughout the day or taking a complete
day off to recharge. Rest is vital to our health, survival, and
We sleep in 90-minute cycles. We feel most rested when we sleep for 90 minutes, 3 hours, 4.5 hours, 6, hours, 7.5 hours, or 9 hours.
Sleep disturbance is the #1 indicator preceding suicide. When we lose sleep, suffer from nightmares, and regularly don't get the sleep necessary to maintain good health, we lose the ability to solve even the most simple problems.
My favorite oasis is in my truck. When I arrive at work, an appointment, or the grocery store I don't feel the need to sprint into the building. I take a few minutes for well-being.
How do you best rest and recharge?
