DR. FRANCIS F. KNORP

Rest By Francis F. Knorp, M. D. HIS means to cease from labor or exertiong to take relaxation from toil or effort, for the purpose of recuperation. i God rested from all His work, the ocean never rests. It means to be free from disturbance, annoyance, distraction, or excitementg to be quiet or stillg to be at peace, to be tranquil, to repose. NVhile most of us know its literal meaning, very few experience it. There is a science in resting as well as anything else, and I believe we should all study the art along with the other studies. This applies to those who toil, not including those to whom it came naturally and whose only effort in life has been to push it along. The mistake most people make is that they have their mind made up to take a rest when a certain goal they have mapped out has been reached, never figuring what may happen in the interim. My motto is, "To rest and enjoy life as we jour- ney onf' The most microscopic part of our body needs rest and must have it: so the body as a whole. The heart is a good example of resting while going. It acts in a cycle-one portion for contraction or emptying, one portion for dilating or filling, and another portion for rest. VVhile the latter is infini- tesimal in each cycle, still it is there, and in the aggregate amounts up. The only real way to rest is to get away, body and mind, from your routine work. Those cooped up all week should get out in the fresh air, take jaunts in the country. Those work- ing' hard physically, keep quiet, but in the open. The Bible tells us that on the seventh day we shall rest. I don't believe this means to become 34

statuary. To my mind, rest is getting away from mental and physical fatigue. Anything that kindles the tire in body and mind is restful, whether it be sleep, athletics, or what not. Wliile every human needs a change from his routine work and routine home life, my suggestions shall be for those that are destined to earn their daily bread by brain work. Every organ in the body needs a rest, especially the brain, the most delicate of all and the most worked. It being the central office, all messages must go to and from it. Not only all conscious, but all unconscious, efforts must center here, for in- stance, looking properly after the nutrition of the body. Hence this is an organ that needs rest above all. Wliile sleep is the most restful of all, still it is not all that is necessary. We must have change of scene and action. As the stomach must not have the same food three times a day, and day after day, so the brain must have its different brain foods in the line of different thoughts, scenes, and actions. Wliat will relax one will not another, so we must choose for ourselves, but all must relax. Once a week and once a year is my favorite pre- scription. Take one day a week and one month a year, everything else being equal. Failing to reach this mark, take one day a week and one week a year-two weeks better, three still better, four enough for anybody, and I consider just right. Even a horse is sent to pasture, and how often is the garden spaded. A rejuvenated brain that pre- sides over everything certainly sends rejuvenation all along the line. I firmly believe if the head of every family had the art of diversion as a part of his study, and had his family working in harmony with him, there would be more happiness in the world. Most people consider the expense, but when viewed from the standpoint that it is a health insur- 37
