Element VI - Rest & Relaxation
It is most unfortunate that our social system has created an environment in which when we feel ill, out of sorts, or our energy is at a low ebb - we are told to soldier on and to continue the stimulation of an already delpeted body.
- Rest and relaxation are nature’s methods of recuperation and restoration.
- Rest is the short period of time in between all the things we do on a daily basis.
- Rest soothes raw nerves that have been over-stimulated.
- Resting the digestive system by eating in accordance with your body cycles will conserve a tremendous amount of energy.
There are times when only the best will do - and the absolute best rest is the one whereby you STOP! - just stop and get into bed and sleep.
"Pain is the Monitor – Rest is the Cure" Dr. John Hilton - 1863
