In this age of the information and technology boom, all sorts of data bombards society each and every second. Absorbing so much info on a daily basis can overwhelm and drain the mental energy from any person. To prevent burnout, you must rest. You must choose not to overwork or to over train in every facet of your life. Take the time to rest. Here are four quick steps that you can use in order to not be steamrolled by the hustle and bustle of life.
1. Expect results. Doing work always results in a reward. You have done the necessary work; thus, there is no need to worry about the outcome. When you focus on the future, then you will no longer worry about the present. Stick this truth within your mind. Circumstances are temporary; expectation is mandatory. Worrying about what is going on will prevent you from resting. Stop worrying and rest.
2. Keep moving forward. You will not be ahead of the pack if you choose to stay in the same place. If you continue to step forward, then you will be so far ahead of the mediocre masses that opportunities to rest will begin to open up within your life.
3. Acknowledge that you are not in control. If you were in control, then you would have solved all of the problems in this earth. Stop worrying about stuff that is totally out of your control. To think that you are in control is worst kind of pride upon this earth. If you are in so much control, then why haven’t you put an end to terrorism? If you are in so much control, then why haven’t you put an end to famine. Once you realize that you are not in control, then you can rest in knowing that the Divine is in control.
4. Remain humble. The definition of humble is listed in Dictionary.com: “not proud or arrogant; modest.” Being humble just means that you choose to keep a low profile. When you choose to be something that you are not, then you will waste time in keeping a false persona around your peers. To increase your efficiency, work on the things that you need to work on each and every day. Once you have completed your objective, you can then rest.
Use rest effectively so that you can remain recharged. I now rest from writing about rest.
