Rest seems like a pretty simple concept, and in many ways it is.
But the way that we have come to understand and use rest may actually be doing you more harm than good.
You see, many people misconstrue low energy for tiredness resulting in resting, when in fact they should be cultivating (building) energy.
It seems pretty natural to come home from work after a long day and want to do nothing, you may in actual fact feel drained and you most probably are.
But drained doesn’t necessarily mean tired.
And you’re drained of what exactly?
Well, you’re drained of energy and when you’re drained of energy, the logical thing to do is to ‘recharge’.
This is where is gets interesting.
Heat is energy, so instead of stillness and sitting around doing nothing, what you probably should be doing at this point is actually moving and generating heat.
Building your fire, cultivating energy and then letting it burn.
