Last week we looked at the bucket of trust; this week’s topic is the bucket of rest, which includes physical, emotional, and spiritual peace.
We all know what it feels like to try and operate without sleep. (It’s not good.) It’s been said we can survive for three times as long without food than without sleep.
But this bucket of rest is much more than what we refer to as sleep. Let’s consider how the rhythms of our lives give us ample opportunity to rest, regenerate, and strengthen us for what’s next.
Here are five questions to ponder about our rest buckets.
For context: In April 2022, I started a series exploring five different areas of our wellbeing. I like to call them “buckets,” because it helps us visualize a full bucket as contributing to our wellbeing, whereas an empty bucket suffers wellbeing.
The wellbeing framework I’m using can be found at slathy.com. It is based on what I’ve found we absolutely cannot survive without, and what we need to not just survive, but also thrive.
