At every end of the day, we will conclude our days with exhaustion and lack of energy to be more active for anything during the nighttime. That applies to anyone who is in the working world, including those in the metal roofing companies. Therefore, everyone deserves their resting hours to regenerate themselves for the next day to come and feel fresh to continue work for the next sunrise.
Here are 5 types of rest you should know and discover your favorite:
Emotional rest is defined as the ability to be vulnerable, express one’s deepest emotions, analyze one’s emotions, and emotionally discharge after a long day. Things can be overwhelming to handle in one sitting, therefore it is compulsory to have this type of rest when you need it. Some activities you can do during an emotional rest are talking or expressing yourself to a therapist or your listener friend, journal your thoughts or join a support group.
Spiritual rest is a type of rest that leads you to participate in things that anchor you, give you a sense of belonging, and make you feel like you are a part of something bigger. Some activities would be a morning practice with meditations or anything similar to it, lending an extra hand to others or doing community services, finding something to believe in and take interest in and also, starting a gratitude journal.
Social rest, as the name itself implies, means spending time with individuals you care about and cultivating relationships that brighten your soul. Things you can do during this rest are: initiating video chats or hanging out with your friends (make sure to follow the new pandemic rules!), doing self-love rituals, joining a book club and dedicating your time to connect with your partner.
A sensory rest can be crucial to some, as it is to get away from digital devices, mental chatter, and continual external stimulation. Limiting your screen time on digital devices, enabling your dark mode on your phone, taking a warm bath with a warm candlelight or taking nature walks can help to bring peace to your mind and ease your muscles from the amount of strength and stamina you used to install metal roof.
Physical rest involves being slightly active but it is for yourself. It is a kind of rest that repairs and relieves your body of aches and tension as well as helping you to sleep better for the night. Some things you can do is to eat a fixed times every single day (for example, breakfast at 8am, lunch at 12pm and dinner at 9pm), taking deep breaths in meditation, getting a sufficient 8 hours of sleep and also, doing a gentle yoga to get that muscle going for the next active day.
Everyone deserves as much rest as anyone else, regardless of their background. A good rest equals a high quality of work to be done!
