Rest - the undervalued component
Saturday, January 26, 2013
I learned another valuable lesson this week -- or actually it was a reminder.
I had been battling a minor bug since Christmas. It was a come and go type of thing and was really beginning to just plain irritate me since I could feel great one minute and really awful another.
Wednesday I did the unthinkable. I used one of my precious leave days to stay home and rest. The difference was astonishing. I'm a chronic insomniac, so sleep is elusive at times, but just plain putting my feet up and closing my eyes for even 20 minutes a day is now becoming part of the plan. It seems to be working so far.
