The Necessity of Rest

 

Stress is among the top killers in america!  People are more stressed than they realize and those that know it have most likely already had a breakdown and are exhausted.  By that time it is too late and much damage has been done. It’s like dehydration, its altogether disorienting and can kill you.  By the time you feel Thirsty it is already an indicator that we are dehydrated....my point is we should be proactive and not reactive, learning to thrive and not merely survive.  We should be “hydrating” along the way and not waiting until its potentiality detrimental.
