In today’s episode, through a question and answer session, we dive into the topic of rest. Rest in the form of actual sleep, rest from our jobs, from school, from social interactions, and rest, even from the work that our healing and recovery require of us.
In a heavily digitized world, we are often expected and asked to be engaged—or at least available—at all times. But as human beings who get tired and drained, being “always on” and “always accessible” is an expectation we can’t and shouldn’t meet. It’s honestly something we need to protect ourselves from if we want to lead healthy, balanced lives. And because To Write Love aims to inspire and lead by example, this episode also marks a mid-season break for the podcast so that Becky, our editor and producer, can go on a month-long sabbatical.
When we say that “we need you here,” we also mean to say that we need you to take care of yourself so that you can be here. We need you to advocate for your well-being, to prioritize things like rest so that you don’t get burnt out to the point that being a “story still going” feels next to impossible.
“When we say 'we need you here,' we also mean to say that we need you to take care of yourself so that you can be here.”
This episode of the TWLOHA podcast was hosted by Chad Moses and produced by Rebecca Ebert. Music assistance was provided by James Likeness and Ben Tichenor.
