Sleep is indeed an effective way to rest, but it is mainly suitable for people who are short of sleep or manual workers. If you are a mental worker, the cerebral cortex is extremely excited, but the body is in a state of low excitement. Sleep has little effect on this kind of fatigue.
Changing people’s activities is the positive way to rest. By changing the activity content, different areas of the brain can rest. When you cannot choose to switch from mental work to manual work, you can also try to switch within mental work.
Seeing relationships, seeing opposites, seeing subconsciousness, seeing bodies and seeing emotions are all for the sake of seeing oneself!
First, read a poem by Rumi:
The entanglements with yourself
All the spirits of heaven
Will deign to serve you
Everyone has dreams when he is young, but as time goes by, dreams gradually fade away and finally only exist in dreams.
Those who realize their ideals are not necessarily smarter or more diligent than you and me, but they often have stronger self-control and execution than you and me.
You said that if you wanted to develop your interest, others would have been writing and painting in their spare time.
