Do some days seem to drag on and on? You’re tired and overwhelmed and just want to get some rest but there’s too much to do. As a writer, I’m constantly writing, critiquing or thinking. It’s enough to drive a crazy man sane. This is time when we need to rest in Jesus. Our bodies are craving a break from the world. Filling ourselves with the spirit is the best way to energize. Bible verse 1 Peter 2 reads, Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation.

When I need a break, I do a quick workout with God to rejuvenate myself. It’s easy, and guess what, no sore muscles from this routine.

First close your eyes and breathe in a deep breath of Jesus. Think about nothing but how much he has done for your life. Suck in the joy and greatness that is God. Imagine what your life would be without him. Release those shoulders from your ears. That’s right, let them relax. Another deep breath. Push up and out all those bad eelings. Another deep breath.

Ah, feel better? There’s no such thing as overtraining with this routine. You can do this workout anytime you need it, even if you’re stuck in traffic. There’s no where inaccessible to God. Just stretch your imagination to find time.

Drink in the wonder that is Jesus every time you feel like the world is crashing around you, and you’ll feel your anxiety cool down. The more you do this breathing  exercise, the nearer you’ll feel to Jesus. It only takes seconds to rejuvenate yourself, and no shower is needed afterward.
