Intentional Rest -
There is a saying - listen to your body whisper so you won't have to listen to it scream...
Intentional rest - like taking time out for mindful movement, meditation or guided deep relaxation, is something you can practice in order to keep your cup full and inner light shining brightly.
Intentional rest is something you really have to DO in order to gain benefits, it's not the same as relaxing on the couch in front of the tv, having a glass of wine, or going out with a friend. Those things can be relaxing yes, but Intentional rest goes beyond these things.
It is a practice of self care that takes you into a certain state, brain waves are at a certain frequency, and the body - mind is better able to heal, let go, release tension, improve interoception and process.
By practicing mindful yoga and guided deep relaxation you are taking that time to focus on intentional rest, your well-being, and refilling your cup.
