PRACTICAL TIPS 

Rest bring rejuvenation.

Try one, try them all.

  • Practice periods of silence and stilling your body and mind 

  • Slow down your pace of life or the moment

  • Take time throughout the week to rest in God, not veg out but find rest in God

  • Sit in God's presence "doing nothing" but being with Him

  • Find ways to delight in God, not just check off a list of doing 

  • Make time to stop and be still, could be small moments in the day or a chunk of time in the week

  • Give yourself times of rest, or days where you don't work, house work, workout, etc.

  • Retreat Days - a whole day of being with God

  • “Soaking” in worship music 

  • Bed day with God - a time to stay in bed, rest in God, read, worship, or just be still

  • Take time away from any media inputs (tv, phone, social media)
