Maintaining #WorkFromRest in a Busy Fall

Rest in summer often has time on its side. Week long vacations where you can slow down and get away are common. But how do you maintain a work from rest rhythm in the busy fall season when the calendar fills in and life gets nuts?

We asked three PLI team members and here’s what they shared about maintaining a work from rest rhythm year round.

“Think small and frequent times of rest,” says Sarah Greiner, PLI Communications. “Sunday afternoons for our family means rest. It’s free time in our schedule each week to relax and be together.”

Raechel Pfotenhauer in PLI Connections added, “Keep it simple and realistic.” Look for moments in your day to refill. Don’t give in to the idea that if you cannot take a ten day trip that rest is not an option.

“Rest is a focused and planned priority for me,” says PLI Leader Gail Ficken. “I plan one day each month to spend time with God and do something that refreshes me.”

School has kicked in, church activities and meetings are ramping up. So be intentional about work from rest this fall by planning small and frequent, simple and realistic, rest into your calendar.
