Did you know that there have been studies that show we need a day of rest? I don't remember where I read it, and it's been ages ago, but I one read a study that showed even work animals need a day of rest on a regular basis. Just like people, they get cranky, sickly, and just unpleasant to be around if they don't have that down time.
One thing I like to do on my day of rest is plan for the coming week. It gives me a chance to look back and see where I can improve, what I did well, and what progress I made toward my goals. It's also a chance to make note of things to get done, what I need to do to move forward.
At our house, we take the day of rest serious. It's the one day that most of us take a nap. Even the dogs sack out with us.
So, do you take a day of rest? What do you like to do in your down time? Are you a napper or a reader or TV watcher?
Whatever you do, rest well. You'll be glad you did.
