“Fatigue is the best pillow.” – Benjamin Franklin
A simple thought for you today, but one with profound short and long-term implications…
I’ve stayed in a few hotels that had pillow “menus” and while I appreciate their concern for my wellbeing, I am inclined to agree with Dr. Franklin’s observation that “[f]atigue is the best pillow.” This is especially true if the fatigue is the result of both mental and physical exertion, for physical exhaustion while your mind is still running a mile a minute or mental exhaustion when your body is amped up may lead to a restless night.
Each day ought to be filled with a vigorous measure of both physical and mental activity. A healthy balance in this regard is essential to our wellbeing.
