Sunday R & R

"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen."--Leonardo Da Vinci

Sunday is a day of rest in our house; not a religious practice, more a practical way to rejuvenate and prepare for the next week of work.

R & R for the soldiers in the military is meant as a vacation away for a couple weeks, and usually there is no Rest or Relaxation during that two weeks.

There is a bit of information here about relaxation:
"Here are some ways to recover from stress: proper sleep of course is essential, but meditation, yoga, listening to music or just having a nice warm bath are great for counteracting stress, it slows down the body and reduces fear, anxiety and tension."

So Sunday is a day off work, a day to rest, to recoup, to prepare for another week.
