Rest & Relaxation

  • Why do we need to relax & rest?
  • Always having to create is stressful, expectations can be high for crafters who use accountability to get things done.
  • Culture today emphasizes the need to get things done.
  • Sometimes we need to step back from things that are stressful to be better in the future.

Rest & Relax

  • Thinking of now instead of what I am going to do later
  • Some people have judgements on what is ‘acceptable’ rest & relaxation.
  • Muscles & thoughts need a cool down time to get better if they’re not doing well.

A few ideas to rest & relax

  • For some people repetitive actions help to rest & relax the mind.
  • For some, putting effort into a new project can drown out thoughts of other things that are bothering you.

Depends on the situation & the task at hand.

Depends on your values.

  • Value multitasking, rest & relax will come more easily if doing multiple things at once.
  • For others, it’s better to just sit & veg out somewhere.

Use music to help with resting & relaxing.

How do you rest & relax the best?

Feel free to add some ideas here.

    Then post an ISO (in search of) in the group. Or just watch until your Viking comes up. It is a pretty active group so I advise you to get it in digest.
