Counterfeit Rest vs True Rest

Whenever you set out to make change or embark on a bold venture, there will be resistance.

One area of resistance that comes against our efforts to live a focused life is what I call “Counterfeit Rest”.

When you have rested, you ought to be recharged and have more energy.

Thus, try to find restful activities that give you energy rather than things that drain your energy.

When I teach about this in The Focus Course, we make note of the fact that true rest usually requires a little bit of effort (i.e. reading a book, cooking a meal, taking a walk…)
