Once upon a time, . . . when I was younger!
I guess we really do slow down as we get older. Not in our heads – we are still battling dragons – and winning. But I’m not sure I could throw my leg over my trusty stead any more!
So, I now will set an appointment time for a rest at some time during the day. I tell myself I’m just following Albert Einstein’s example – he used to take quick naps to refresh himself. I tend to take a few quick naps together at the same time!
Nevertheless, today I headed into a full day, and with about an hour or a bit more rest time, was able to complete a 10 hour work day. A few years ago I could have pushed for a 12 hour work day. But somehow, I don’t find that I “need” to do that any more.
Which reminds me that rest is a good thing – not an interruption but an infusion of strength!
