I've been doing some reading yesterday and today that has brought back to mind a question I've been wrestling with for, oh, most of my adult life.
How can you tell the difference between sloth and rest?
When is the desire to "just sit down" a true need for rest, and when is it the first step down the yucky path of sloth and ennui?
I've never found the answer to this. Sometimes it seems like there is no concrete answer - that each day and each occasion must be treated differently. But if that is so, there must be some way to discern what you're dealing with on each occasion, and I'm not sure what that is.
I'd love to get some thoughts from all you readers. Comment, please? I'm sure I can't be the only one who has thought about this.
