In today’s episode, I’m joined by my husband to talk about something most of us tend to struggle with – finding rest. It sounds silly, but for many of us, the idea of slowing down and taking a breath is a struggle. We talk about what rest is and what it isn’t. David and I dig into some of the “whys” behind our resistance to rest, chat about our own experiences, and discuss David’s acronym for a solid resting plan.

Things to Remember From Today’s Episode:

“If you work with your hands, you need to rest with your brain. If you work with your brain, you need to rest with your hands.”

Remember David’s acronym for rest: BRACED

B-Boundaries: What will I do while I’m resting? What won’t I do while I’m resting?

RRecreation: What are you going to do for FUN?

A- Air: How are you going to get fresh air while resting?

C-Community: Who will you be in community with/connect with during your time of rest? *Choose people who refresh you – not those who drain/sap your energy!

E-Eat: What will you eat during your time of rest?

D-Delight: What will you take delight in while you are resting?
