FLOURISH 022 – Rest

| Sent Wednesday 29th of November

Hey friend, 

Fresh off a whirlwind 7 day trip from Mexico to New Zealand and back; I’m TIRED.

And I’m reminded of a powerful, often overlooked tool in our quest for growth and achievement: Rest.

As I sit here, still feeling the hum of jet engines in my bones, I’m struck by the truth in Leonardo da Vinci’s words: “Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgement will be surer.”

So it’s not just about taking a break; it’s about coming back with a sharpened edge.

This journey drained much of my energy. It’s in moments like these that I am reminded that rest isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. When we rest, we don’t just recover; we rebuild, rethink, and reignite our passions with a clearer, more focused mind.

So, this week, I encourage you to join me in embracing rest. You probably need it.

Whether it’s a 15 minute power nap, an evening without the kids, a day off, or just a quiet hour away sitting in a green space, let’s allow ourselves this essential time. It’s in these moments of stillness that we find the strength to leap higher, think deeper, and move with greater purpose.

Remember, resting isn’t about stopping. It’s about strategically pausing to enhance everything that comes next. It’s the deep breath before the sprint, the calm before the storm of creativity and productivity.

Much love and rest,
