My friend asked me ‘how did it get this far?’ and I asked myself the same question. Not just for me, personally, but for a society as a whole as well, with so many dropping out due to burnout. What’s really going on here?
When have you worked enough? When have you ‘earned’ the right to take some rest? Are you weak if you just can’t manage to keep up with the day-to-day rhythm? I was forced to look at some of these questions, through my own very personal lens.
Why is it so hard for us to rest? Do you ever just sit still and relax, for hours on end? I want to look at why it is tough, and how I can start building rest into my life.
