Rest is the guardian of health.
~ Melba Colgrave ~
Now that we are sober, we’re feeling better than we have in years. We’re busy too. We attend meetings and visit friends. We have work, school, families, and homes to keep up with.
It’s easy to forget to rest. We forgot that our bodies and minds need time off. We need plenty of sleep each night. And we need a lazy weekend now and then to let our bodies recover from to go, go, go of daily life.
Prayer for the Day:
Higher Power, help me listen to my body. Remind me to slow down and rest now and then.
Action for the Day:
How much have I rested lately? Have I gotten enough sleep each night? What can I do in the next two days to rest my body, mind, and spirit?
