The following was written at another time, for what it is worth today. Still, a sample of life, somewhere, somehow, somebody, everybody. It’s about work-life balance which confronts us today by external events, but this article was written when things were ‘normal’. I’d like to publish it because it’s a piece from my past which I reworked today. I cringe publishing it, but what the heck. I guess these principles still apply.
Work can actually be fantastic and so can rest. Without working, our time away from it may not be as appreciated. Perhaps for someone to appreciate rests and breaks, one has been working and can really appreciate a rest and a break!
When I think of grumpy Monday mornings, when we start the working week, or whatever day one starts, and when we face the fight to keep on working, or complain about work, that is when we don’t really like working and prefer rests and breaks to work. But there is balance between work and rest which is healthy in the long run.
As we all know, breaks are the mortal’s way to rejuvenate. If we don’t break we could breakdown. We can work too much! In fact, there are even laws around how many hours one should be working in a day to protect the health of workers.
One works, one rests. All together in a way that beneficial to the person. And if one can’t work, one may find things to do, and balancing it with rest.
