Rest is simply a break from work and a time to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. The duration of rest may vary from just a momentary break from work (e.g taking a deep breath) to a permanent break from work (e.g retirement). The manner in which rest is expressed also varies from culture to culture and from individuals to individuals. For example, some individulas must travel far away from their work environment inorder to rest fully while some individuals are able to rest fully no matter where they are. Whatever the variations, the central purpose for rest remains universal: a rejuvenating break from work.
The importance of rest is emphasized in all creation stories. For example, the creation story of Judaism and Christianity informs us that the Creator rested on the seventh day after six days of hard-work (Genesis 2: 1-3). The Creator's rest established rest for all creatures. The point that rest is preceded by work is also important because a living being that rests all the time without productive work is unwell. In other words, the cycle of work, rest and work is an important component of a healthy life.
A few weeks ago, those of us working behind the scene at tectechnics.com took a break from our work (popularly called vacation or holiday). We also wanted our much appreciated visitors to rest. Consequently, there was no new content uploaded to tectechnics.com during our rest.
We are now back from our rest rejuvenated and ready to continue the intellectual journey we express at tectechnics.com.
