Go the distance: the difference between rest, recovery, restoration, recreation

Seaton beach I was introduced to a framework similar to this by a fellow Chaplain, Mia Hilborn, on our last Paediatric Chaplaincy day. The fact I still remember 6 plus months later what she said suggests something resonated and stuck and she explained the need and difference to first recover before recreating after difficult crisis situations.  This week I am trying to take them in some kind of order and not expect too much of myself early in the holiday as I take an afternoon nap.

If you are on holiday this week or shortly, I pray you find time for all these aspects.  And be gentle with yourself in the mean time.
