“Rest when you're weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work.” – Ralph Marston
There's nothing better than taking a day 'off' during the week. A day where you don't think about anything else other than that day. A week off the pressures of life. To just enjoy.
Statistics say that you live longer if you do.
My theory is that we also function better too.
After having a restful day yesterday (including a nana nap), today was relaxing too. But I'm amazed and what was achieved.
By 4pm, I had prepared 3 cooked meals (which included yummy pancakes for breakfast), done all the washing and folding, completed all those little sewing jobs, washed walls, cleaned 2 prams and had a spotless kitchen.
In that time I'd also spent enjoyable time with most of my little family.
It was just one of those days where the kids played quietly, hubby and I could catch up over casual conversation (and guitar playing), while getting those little jobs finished. All in a semi-rested environment.
It was bliss. And the perfect way to finish a lovely weekend.
