Something like a sore toe or the ongoing frustration of an overwhelming backlog of emails in your inbox.

It’s no wonder we all need to detox!
When someone asks me to relax, I immediately think of doing something, like slowing my breathing or letting go of tight muscles. Even thinking about doing these things is doing something with my brain!
Resting, on the other hand, is doing nothing. Absolutely nothing. No thinking. No moving. No tensing. No conscious relaxing.
This puzzled me, especially as I’d had plenty of time off on the west coast, spending much of it outdoors enjoying time with our daughter and grandson who’d been staying with us for a couple of months awaiting their house move.
