What the hell are you talking about…rest?! I have too much to do!
This week, let’s talk about rest or more important fatigue. There has never been a time in our history in which humans have been exposed to stimulus at such a high frequency. We can get it, see it, learn it, do it, whatever we want…it is just a click and charging that credit card away.
In the current pandemic if we work from home there is no down time between work and play. Now more than ever we need time to rest.
Our animals and children will remind us. My nephew just called me on a group chat. When I saw the missed call and text my sister to ask if she had called, she replied that he took her phone. She was working and he is only nineteen months old. Ha!
Even in doing this research I was bombarded with advertisements which I had to click on to remove from the screen while trying to get information.
Shut up already!
How many calls a day do you get from advertisers? Putting your phone on silent is the only option to get anything done these days. How many family members need something from you, or of you, now? “Just email me” is the new norm. We just don’t have time. We have to prioritize everything we do. It is like a dog barking at a doorbell and we all…are barking internally.
Take time to rest. Here are a few suggestions.
