Why is Rest Important for Mental Health?
If so, then your mind might be trying to tell you something! It needs rest. Why is rest important for mental health? Because God did not design our minds to keep going 24/7, even though it might feel that way sometimes! Many of us understand the importance of rest for the body. But if we are not resting our minds enough, they have a way of telling us. The racing mind when we’re trying to get to sleep is just one way they do that.
Sabbath Helps Us Recharge
Bearing in mind the importance of rest and relaxation, we need a day every week to recharge our mental health. God designed the Sabbath to give us the space we need to do that. We all do it in different ways. Some of us like to spend some time in quietness. Perhaps the Sabbath is the only day we have space to be quiet. Others find mental rejuvenation through hobbies or other recreation. Still others find their mental health is recharged simply by being with the people they love – family or friends.
Whatever it is, plan now to do whatever recharges your mental health during your next Sabbath. You’ll be glad you did. Why is rest important for mental health? Like a tennis racket, our emotions need to be unstrung and restrung on a regular basis, to ensure they don’t snap.
