In everyday life rest will come at different times of the day for different people. For those in ‘nine to five’ jobs it may come after they get home and have had their dinner, while those working at home may find times during the day to take a rest, as those involved in shift work may have to.
Then there are the holidays, when many fly away to seek the sunshine despite the tedium of waiting in airports, and all the hassle that modern travel involves. But then maybe ‘a change is as good as a rest’.
Whatever our preference, at some point we do need that time and space to relax and just ‘be’. However important our work may be, we need to switch off occasionally, otherwise we can become overtired and our mental faculties are affected.
A walk in nature, in the hills, forests, by the river, along the seashore, or even time in the garden, can redress the balance, and our problems are often then seen in a new and truer light.
