I want to share something I came across on Facebook yesterday which deeply resonated with me. I have been very guilty recently of not resting and I have been forced to face the consequences of physical exhaustion, leading me to have to rest these past few days.
Let this be a message to all of us that are caught up in the bullshit of over-productivity:
LET YOURSELF REST
If you’re exhausted, rest.
If you don’t feel like starting a new project, don’t.
If you don’t feel the urge to make something new, just rest in the beauty of the old, the familiar, the known.
If you don’t feel like talking, stay silent.
If you’re fed up with the news, turn it off.
If you want to postpone something, do it.
If you want to do nothing, let yourself do nothing.
Feel the fullness of emptiness, the vastness of the silence, the sheer life in your unproductive moments.
Time does not always need to be filled.
You are enough simply in your being.
– by Jeff Foster
