We need rest
Rest is a state of inactivity. It is to stop from doing work and spend time for sleeping, relaxing or for doing nothing after a work or activities.
Hello my dear read.cash family, I am so inactive these past few days. I am a little bit busy in the outside world because since Sunday evening I am attending a health and gospel seminar. Usually I used my vacant time in the evening to interact here or to be present in the online world, but these days until Friday I will be spending it to listen health and gospel seminar. I felt good about it too because my screen time was lessened and my eyes could rest and free from radiation for a few hours plus I learned more about health and gospel.
Before I go on, let me thank these wonderful people who are always there to support me. You can check on them and read their great articles.
The topic last night is about rest and I decided to share it with you.
Rest is very essential not only to animals but most above all to humans. We really need rest to restore our drained energy. We also need it for our overall health.
We are so active everyday from doing household chores upto doing our work or specific job. During working hours we are using our energy to perform the task we needed to do and finish in a day. We feel weary and our body really need rest.
At the end of the day, usually in the evening, we give our body a time to rest by sleeping. According to seminar last night, babies need 20 hours of sleep and that's the reason why babies keep on sleeping. It is essential for their growth. Children needs 10 hours of sleep while adults needs 7-8 hours.
Nowadays, only few people or specifically adult got this sleep requirement and me myself is guilty on this because usually I only have 5-6 hours of sleep.
The speaker told his story that when he is young and his family is living in the mountain, no television, no cellphone, no electricity, they can sleep early and wake up early giving their body enough time to rest.
When our body get enough time of sleep, it will give us energy and better feeling during the day. But if we lack of sleep, we have less energy making us less productive.
It was also advised that we need an hour to two hours to let our digestive system done its work before we go to sleep. Many reacted and laugh because most of us go to sleep even we are just done eating. Indeed it was a great reminder for all of us.
God who is the creator of the universe, make himself a model to have a one day rest. He made everything (day and night, firmament, sun, moon and stars, land and seas, trees amd flowers, fishes and animals, human) on six days and on the seventh day He rested. He also blessed and sanctified it.
God knows that we human needs rest and so He gave us a specific day of rest. This is also the reason that employee's should be given one day rest.
If a machine needs a day or days to rest to have its maintenance how much more you and I who are humans? We really need rest too. So, let's give time for ourselves to relax and have enough rest.
