I think God made us to operate on cycles. One of these cycles is work, relax, repeat.
For example, when using a computer, it’s best to take brief breaks from the screen. Every 10 minutes, look 10 feet away, for 10 seconds.
For every hour of sitting, do five minutes of walking.
For every six days of work, take one day off.
For every six months of work, take one week off.
And if you’re a farmer, every six years, give your fields one year of rest.
It boils down to this: If we neglect the rest, we become work-aholics.
If we neglect the work, we become lazy slobs.
Let’s stay true to our cycles.
