More often than not, life’s paths are not a straight shot to your final destination. No, they are just the opposite, winding, foggy, and filled with uncertainty.
What’s around the next bend? What’s that fuzzy image ahead?
You don’t know.
How do you navigate these paths? Do you run with eyes closed hoping to make it where you want to go? No!
Without a clear picture, what’s your next move? Do you stop and give up? Absolutely not!
In this ACRONYM story, we’ll consider the third of the three R’s that lead to CLARITY. How to Easily Rest Your Way to Clarity
Rest Your Way to Clarity
There’s nothing like a good night’s sleep to refresh your body and mind. I also love a good power nap during the day. It’s amazing how much better I feel after a short rest than if I try to plow through my day. I’m much more alert and ready to receive new ideas.
True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn
How can a person rest their way to clarity? The quote below provides an important clue.
I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark. ~Henry David Thoreau
I’ve personally found while my body and mind are at rest, my mind is actually still working. But how does that lead to clarity?
In Request Your Way to Clarity, the idea was to ask great questions. One of the best times to ask yourself a question is just before you go to sleep.
Without all of the distractions of awake time, your mind will process that question. And when you awake, be prepared to capture your thoughts.
Daily Doable: Rest for clarity but do it strategically. Ask yourself a question just before your rest time. Your mind will do the rest.
