Did you know rest and relaxation, “R and R”, are significant parts of our healthy living? And the saying: “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy” is true as well.
Many times people associate the phrase “I’m resting” to mean “I’m the weak one” however contrary to that, incorporating rest in your daily plans help to rejuvenate you for the next task, allowing you to regain focus and feel energize to just fire away.
