B.T.’s Corner: The importance of rest

By Brian L. Thomas

As college students, we perform an amazing amount of activities on the daily basis. Our brains are constantly working and our bodies are constantly fighting to keep up.

We work to organize our busy schedules and become frustrated or discouraged when things don’t work in our favor.

Very rarely, do we take time to truly rest our minds. We often confuse watching TV, surfing the Internet or spending time with friends with relaxation.

Mental rest is important because it grants perspective. With a better perspective, we can find better, more efficient paths to success in class, in our social sphere and in life.

I challenge you to take 15-20 minutes out of each day, find a quiet place and simply rest your mind.
