Are you tired? I am. I’m exhausted. I’m exhausted from life and leadership. November and May seem to always be the times of year where I’m the most worn out.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to make things complicated when I’m exhausted. I over-think things. I try to solve everything. I try to fix everything. I work harder. But that’s not a wise way to handle exhaustion.
Instead, there is one smart thing to do when you’re exhausted: rest.
That’s it. It’s that simple.
Get some rest. Get a good night sleep. Sabbath. Don’t be responsible for a day or two. Recharge. Do things that you love to do. Exercise. Do whatever would be most restful for your soul and body.
Rest conquers exhaustion. Nothing else will work. Go get some rest.
