If you have trouble with burning yourself out on too many activities think about it this way.
Resting can be an act of power.
If you have trouble resting you probably don’t think about it as a powerful thing. You might even view rest as failure, where you rest when you give up.
But if the only way you can get yourself to rest is through giving up and falling over when you can’t continue then it will be a rest full of shame and wishful thinking.
But if you have a willingness to understand that rest is a fundamental part of how the human animal works, then you can consciously choose it. And you can engage in it as an act of preparation for what’s to come.
Whether you like it or not, you must rest. It’s up to you whether you make it an empowering activity or one that makes you feel like you’ve just lost time.
