Sometimes I like to just pull out my guitar and strum. No matter what I’m playing (or attempting to play), I find myself relaxed. What is it that you do to relax?
It is important to relax. Reading is the way that I used to relax, but now that I’m at seminary I find myself with an inordinate amount of reading and writing. When a person spends all of their time reading theologians and Biblical commentaries it is hard to find the time to enjoy a Harry Potter book, for example.
I hope that you will take a moment to think about the last time you were truly and completely relaxed. Don’t think of it as a luxury – but as a necessity – and make time to relax more often!
