“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”
— Anne Lamott

This quote is poignant for me today for a few reasons.  It reminds me that my rest is as vital a part of my well being as is running, reading and working.  A reset is important.

On another note, I have been thinking through how much of my life is habit driven.  Habits are valuable and make life easier to navigate, but at the same time, they reduce resilience.  My resilience is tested when my habits (i.e. routines) are challenged.  For example, I may sleep well in my bed, but not so well when traveling or camping.  I might eat healthy at home, but not in restaurants.  I may exercise with intensity during a group class, but without intensity on my own.  Unplugging from my routines, could help me build resilience.
