The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it. (Sydney J. Harris, 20th century journalist)

It’s one of those suggestions that seem counter-intuitive. When I’m so pressed for time that I don’t even want to take my coffee or lunch break. The deadline is fast approaching and there is still too much to do. Sydney’s advice, however, may be the very practice that will prevent the stroke or heart attack that could create an even longer and unproductive pause.

It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones (Psalm 127:2).
