Day 40 – The Importance of Rest

I’ve been very busy these past 2 weeks, working on a new project that I want done by the time we leave. One by-product of being that focussed and busy though is that I get to the point where I’m just doing too much.

Frans is very good at spotting when this happens – mainly because I start getting angry, tearful and nasty towards him. It’s like my capacity to take on more (which is naturally very high), just reaches its limit and starts to be too much. He’s learned over the years how to see this trend coming and then he lets me know that it’s time to take a break.

That’s what happened today. I was SOOO frustrated and just starting being ugly towards him. I’m starting to realise when this boiling point happens too, and even though it’s really difficult for me to do, I am learning that it’s far better for me to stop and rest for a day, than push through and carry on.

So, we went down to the pool and just read our books, swam and suntanned today. I’m quite amazed at how much better I always feel at the end of a day like this. I’m re-fired and re-inspired and ready to go tomorrow.

Do you take time out when you need to? I’d highly recommend it – it’s a great re-charger. 🙂
