Rest…(too apathetic)

Relaxation…(lacks energy)

Restoration…(something you do to inanimate furniture)

Recovery…(from what?)



battery-clipart-cliparti1_battery-clip-art_01I like that. Recharging sounds active, although recharging is something our brains do automatically while we sleep. According to some new and developing research, taking time to recharge well makes us more resilient and supports creativity. So in the interest of running at fully powered and resilient creativity and curiosity, I’ll be taking some time to recharge. I encourage you to take the recharge time you need too. Happy summer!
