Resting is not Sleeping

Resting is not the same as sleeping ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Sleep is when your body is shut down and your body is not alert. ⁣⠀
Rest is when your body is awake and alert. ⁣⠀
You don’t have to sleep in order to rest. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Some of us are so busy that though we get in a few hours of sleep at night we neglect our bodies from resting. Resting is not sleeping. Resting is SUPER important. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Even Jesus understood the importance of rest, when he created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. Genesis 2:2⁣

Benefits of resting: ⁣⠀
1. Reduces Stress⁣⠀

Besides, you can’t pour from an anything cup!⁣⠀
