“The best cure for the body is a quiet mind”. – Napoleon Bonaparte

I sometimes believe that I don’t have the time or the option to relax. If you’re like me, and you go to a school where competition is so high you just can’t get enough rest, you’ll understand what I mean. Or if you’re in a situation where your life is in disarray, things aren’t going as planned, and your stress levels are at all-time highs, you’ll be able to relate. Every day, I stay up till past midnight, sometimes even till 5 to get my homework done. Even if I don’t procrastinate, it still happens because that is the environment I live in. I can’t do anything about it except continue losing sleep in order to get grades which in the end don’t even make me happy, because I feel depressed and stressed out inside.

Many people constantly work too hard every day in order for a better future, but you can’t have a bright future if you aren’t happy in the present. I can’t stress enough how important it is to take some time out for yourself in order to keep a calm mind and make sure things don’t get out of hand. And you probably won’t take this advice from me hearing my sleep schedule, but believe me, I’ve started to change that and take my own advice. Even if it’s just sleeping a few hours earlier, or hanging out with friends, or even having some sweet alone time, I’ve started to loosen up. And I’ve noticed that even though my life is still hectic, I’m feeling better as time goes by. By getting my much needed relaxation, I’m finally realizing that I can control my life better and do things with more effort than I was before. So I hope you take the chance to calm yourself and get some peace, because it’s worth it in the end.

    Waiting for tomorrow for happiness and peace, for some miracle something to come save us is, perhaps, the greatest danger we could ever surrender to.

    We live in a culture that always says, “Go, go, go!!!!”. But that is not the way God designed us to be. He understood that our bodies needed rest in order to recharge. That is why He created the Sabbath, not because He was tired, but because we were tired. What would be your day of rest? It can be anything from taking a extra hour of sleep, or even doing an activity you enjoy. Without rest, sooner or later, your body will burn out and you will be good for nothing.
