Sunday News - - FEATURE -

In a cap­i­tal­ist so­ci­ety, we’re brought up to con­form to the sys­tem. We’re taught the prac­ti­cal skills we need to progress, (such as count­ing), and to fol­low the path that’s ex­pected of us. That usu­ally means be­ing goal-ori­en­tated, am­bi­tious, com­pet­i­tive and, if need be, self­ish. No one teaches us the value of tak­ing a step back oc­ca­sion­ally. Rare is the per­son who ad­vises tak­ing a day off for some re­cu­per­a­tion. Life’s far too fast paced for that. But th­ese things are es­sen­tial. You’ll gain a lot from a lit­tle rest this week.
