The importance of rest is greatly under-valued in training and in life.

People are addicted to doing more, getting more, driving there faster, and resting less.

If you train  hard you have to rest to gain the most progress from it.

News slash–

Even if you don’t train you need to rest.

Rest is not just for your body, it’s also for you mind, your emotions, and your relationships.

I’m  a firm believer in throwing on my bathing suit and a pair of flip-flops and heading to the beach a couple of times each week.

There’s just something about it that’s good for the soul.

Just unwinding does you a world of good. You have to disconnect from the pressure on a consistent basis. It’s healthier and a whole lot more fun than white-knuckling it at each traffic light want to get ahead of whoever is in front of you.

Take some time to kick back and enjoy the  simple things in life, you’ll be glad you did.

You’ll also be more productive when your return to work or your other responsibilities.

By the way, read “Will Doesn’t Work” by Benjamin Hardy and you’ll see what I mean.
