Importance of Rest

Our lives are incredibly busy, aren’t they? It seems as though we find ourselves rushing from one activity to another, day after day. Eventually, this takes a toll on our well-being. This is true for those who are generally healthy.

For those who live with chronic illness, the impact of continually trying to overdo your activities is most often very dire. Symptoms inevitably flare when you fail to receive the rest that your body absolutely requires.

It’s not self-indulgent, nor selfish, to say no to extra demands on your time and energy. It’s simply self-preservation.
