Guidepost #7: Cultivating Play and Rest - Letting Go of Exhaustion as a Status Symbol and Productivity as Self-Worth


Play and rest. Two, foreign concepts to most people these days. The majority of people I've consulted with over the last twenty years have operated in survival mode, where their lifestyle demands are greater than their resources. Survival mode is just an indicator of WHAT is happening to them; it doesn't inform us of WHY it's happening. Though the critical question to ask is: How do they measure success? The measure of success often stems from unmet needs, which arises from our attachment to the painful experiences of our past. It usually comes back to power, prestige, possessions, perks, privileges, and promotions...all entirely superficial and egoic. This doesn't make anyone bad; it merely reveals the scarce and wounded nature of our culture. Interestingly, play and rest always play key roles in the strategy of balancing one's lifestyle


"The opposite of play is not rest, the opposite of play is depression." Stuart Brown
