Sunday a day of rest?

I always feel guilty when I have my best financial ideas on a Sunday and I start trying to act on them, because I keep thinking that I shouldn’t be working on the sabbath (sometimes I wonder if I’m Jewish, since I don’t do much on Saturday either).

My view is that if you have ideas on Sunday, and you are trying to “relax” that is the reason you are having the idea (i.e. your brain is no longer obsessing about the day to day, and is attempting to think about other things, and thus your subconscious is now doing stuff for you).

Sunday (or whatever day is your Sabbath), should be a day of rest, but not a day of inaction.

  1. No rest for the wicked! I only have Saturdays and Sundays off from my regular job, so if I didn’t work on my various websites and online endeavors on both of those days I’d get nothing done!

    LOL – do I ever relate to that post! Being self-employed is brutal that way … you can never let go and just BE, esp. if you love your business. I made the active choice about 2 years ago to make Sundays all about going to a religious service, being with friends, walking the dogs, meditating, reading good novels etc because I could so clearly see that I would go down in flames, otherwise. But it’s hard! After this praxis of a couple years, I rarely have ‘ideas’ anymore on Sundays – not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!
