If there’s one thing I believe more than anything about leadership other than we can’t do leadership alone is that leaders need to find rest. Rest is critical to your personal development, even if it seems counterintuitive.
The Role Of Rest And Renewal In Personal Development
There are multiple reasons why rest is essential in your personal development. Rest does the following:
- Recharges our minds
- Recharges our bodies
- Gives us clarity
- Allows us to process our day
- Helps us to process our situations
As you can see, rest isn’t something we choose to do. Rest is something we must do. But we struggle with rest because we’re told to hustle all day, every day. That’s terrible advice. We have to find ways to slip rest into our days.
