So what can we learn about resting? Taking time out? Taking a break? Well, I can learn a lot, because I don't do it that often, which means sometimes I get sick. We have to take time to rest.
See, zombies are always on the move, always shuffling slowly forward, but this is their relaxing. They're chillin'. This is like the stage where you're taking a day off, but you're still open to new ideas coming in.
Then, when a zombie sees a human it wants to connect with, as in by biting its brain, then it is full on go and get 'em, tiger! This is like the stage where you get an idea, or where you're on a work or school day. Now you can go full on at it because tyou're well rested and raring to go, and you can get it done and make it awesome!
Resting is also awesome for GETTING ideas and answers. Some of the most awesome people in the world say that they get their best ideas when they're relaxing, or skiing, or running, or going for a walk. If you're actually looking for an answer to something, sometimes the best way to find it is to get out of there and relax. Go for a run. Play a game. Take a nap. More often than not, that's when the answer wil;l hit you between the eyes like a zombie trying to get its hand inside your skull.
So work hard when it's work time, but learn to relax too. And yes, I'm talking to me as much as to you about this. And yes, talking to myself might mean I'm a little bit crazy, but it also means there's one more person who can warn myself about a zombie attack!
Ha. See? Saved myself.
SLast week, I was lucky enough to go to Bayswater West Primary school, which was actually where I did my teaching rounds like 12 years ago, before the zombie apocalypse, and they had gone the extra mile!
