Thankfully, most volcanoes do not erupt every day. While "resting," volcanoes build up energy that allows them to continue. You build energy when you rest, too—short breaks during the day and a good, long sleep at night.
Your Heart Depends on Rest
Do you know that not getting proper sleep can put stress on your heart? Rest is important for your heart and your overall health.
As you sleep, your body rejuvenates itself. Digestion happens. Cells rebuild. You repair your body and help your mind work properly. According to Health.gov, getting enough sleep has many benefits. "It can help you:
- Get sick less often
- Stay at a healthy weight
- Lower your risk for serious health problems, like diabetes and heart disease
- Reduce stress and improve your mood
- Think more clearly and do better in school and at work
- Get along better with people
- Make good decisions and avoid injuries..."
Take A Break
When you work, work, work, you stress your body and can undo everything that a good night's sleep does for you. Be sure to schedule time for short breaks throughout the day to take some deep breaths, go for a short walk, get a bit of sunshine, eat a healthy lunch, and have a laugh with your colleagues.
Take care of yourself and take a break from stress.
Nourish Your Body & Soul
I encourage you to care of yourself by eating satisfying, nourishing food that is good for your body and makes you feel healthy.
