Rest is Not a Dirty Word

Rest is Not a Dirty Word

What is it about the word rest that makes us women recoil in horror?

Having a holiday or a day off work is no problem at all; the more the merrier in fact! However, when, like now, I am being made to rest and recover it’s the last thing I want to do, I’m bored in minutes, restless (ironic wording) can’t get comfy, fidgety and pretty moody because I can’t do what I want to do. Does anybody else get that? I can lie on a beach for hours on end, I know that I am resting and I can feel all the benefits of it, but if it’s not my choice, yuck get me back to work and workouts!
