Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, and I’ve done some things to make that more of a reality.
Yet today, the backlog of work on the desk that used to have a wooden face (now covered with files, papers and other work to do) drew me into its mess, crying for me to get rid of some of its piles. So I acquiesced and I got projects updated for two clients who need reports for meetings tomorrow.
Why is it so hard to take that day of rest? I remember when we were kids, Sunday was a family day. We’d either go shooting with my Dad as a family or we might go to my grandparents’ place or back yard for a picnic. At night, I remember watching the Wonderful World of Disney before it was time for me to go to bed.
It seemed to be a simpler time, one where you could take a day to rest, a day to be with family, read a book, swim, bike, hike or anything else…except work.
Tonight I will take an evening of rest. After supper, I’ll try a glass of blueberry wine I bought for the holidays and maybe read a little or write.
How do you take a day of rest? What is your favorite day-of-rest activity? I’d really like some ideas.
