Rest and recovery is treated like a reward for hard work.
Rest and recovery is necessary for working and living to the best of your ability.
It is a prerequisite for exceptional performance.
It is the right kind of selfishness.
When you’re at 100% everyone wins. When you’re not, no one wins.
The most efficient way of getting rest and recovery is:
a) sleeping well at night.
Here’s works for me:
No caffeine after 8pm, dark curtains/eye mask, eyes closed before 10pm, and no screens 30 minutes before sleep.
Them screens mess up your sleep chemicals.
And usually you’re too involved in a screen when you could be making your relationship deeper and stronger (in whatever myriad ways you can think of. Talking is one of them)
It’s a super recharge for your mind and body. A “defrag”, putting everything into it’s proper place.
If you can make it a habit to get a session during the day, you’re going to love it.
The bottom line is:
During the day, you have to stop.
And not just mess around on the internet or play Pokemon Go …
You have to get well out of what you are doing.
I strongly recommend that you close your eyes and meditate for at least 10 minutes, preferably more.
You have to find the time to recharge, resharpen, and restock your energy, your clarity, your patience, and your sense of humour.
No one else will do it for you!
99% of everyone else is on the same rat race, chasing their tails in smaller and smaller circles.
If you want more than that, you have to be prepared to do things differently from everyone else.
Even if that looks a little strange, like closing your eyes in the middle of the day - so be it.
Even if it feels a little selfish to begin with - so be it.
Don’t get sucked in. Do whatever it takes to remember.
There is a right kind of selfishness - All so you can give more, and enjoy it all more.
