Rest based living

1) rest based living – our bodies run in rhythms, circadian and Ultradian rhythms, too much for too long of any one kind of stimulation (activity, mental work, rest) and we fatigue and productivity wears down.
We wear ourselves out. And overtime this can create stress, health conditions, or feelings of not enjoying your life.
Practicing rest based living means planning downtime throughout the day and varying the types of stimulation so you’re not completely worn out.
Here’s an example of a day:
Wake up have a glass of water and walk around the block or 30 minute workout
Shower, gather food and any work or bags, eat.
Work 2-4 hours – make calls to clients, train them, if at a desk job do your tasks (sit on stability ba, get up every 30 minutes to stretch)
Take a break; go for a walk stretch or mini circuit, take a moment to socialize, eat.
Do some business related work, train clients, 1-3 hrs.
Stretch, walk, step outside into nature; eat….

I think you get the point, how can you practice RBL? 🙂
