Today, during a couple different practices, I found myself explaining the idea behind the Sabbath. The Sabbath is all about rest. The traditional definition – “A day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by the Jews from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday.”

So, the Sabbath mindset is more what I’m talking about. Most of the high performers engaged in BTL practice tend to burn it at both ends a bit too much. The idea of sitting still and resting during the work day is an all together foreign idea. In my observance of me and my brain, it’s become clear that I need more sabbath in my everyday. So, in between moments of getting high on this thing called BTL practice, I catch my chemically aroused mind and bring it back down. I walk out of practice and breathe slowly while freeing my mind from the thought of the next one coming up. These transition times are times of sabbath. Rest. Restore. Recover. Relax. As this has become my sabbath practice, each day’s end has come a bit calmer and less cortisol crazy. My Miss’s insistence on Magnesium to start and the end each day has helped too. Funny how smart some people are when you take the time to listen and let their council on in. Moving along…

For me, getting more rest into my day has been, well, a God send. Funny, how applying ancient truth to a modern world still works. Today, I talked Sabbath twice after my fellow Builder reminded me of a little Romans 12. Today, I’ve already experienced some much needed rest while enjoying the work of BTL practice. My ipad tells me the next practice is here. Time for another rush of blood to the head. Good…
