Week 1: Make a plan

Look at your diary for the forthcoming week and identify the time(s) you have set aside for rest. Some readers will laugh at this suggestion, thinking that their circumstances or situation in life excludes them from rest. While I absolutely identify with the challenges of responsibility for children and family, and/or pressing work obligations, I cannot find the ‘get out’ clause in the fourth commandment. I know because I have tried. So getting out your diary and making a plan to rest would seem to be a good place to begin. 

Having set aside the time, make a plan as to how you will rest during that time.
