Rest Ethic
Be More, Have More, Do Less
by Dr. Sean Orr

In today’s ambitious and competitive world, we are taught that hard work is the only path to success. Taking time for ourselves is seen as selfish, lazy, or weak, and considered the number one reason for failures of all sorts. Without question, a strong work ethic is important. But what happens when hard work is all you have left? With your relationships neglected, your free-time non-existent, and your health in decline, can you really hope to enjoy your success? Just like day and night, rest balances work. A strong rest ethic is all about securing your own oxygen mask first and taking care of yourself. Sound selfish? It's not. A strong rest ethic offers you better health, more time to understand and pursue what you truly value, and a healthier, relationship with work, so that you can better meet the never-ending demands on your time and energy. We can all experience this balance, not by detracting from our work ethic but by including a strong rest ethic. Now included in this expanded Second Edition: Financial Rest and Putting your Rest Ethic to Work.

Father, husband, speaker, and author, Dr. Sean Orr has experienced first-hand the importance of balancing work and rest ethics. As a successful chiropractor who was better at giving health/life advice than taking it, he learned those lessons the hard way, and has now shifted his focus to ensuring that others recognize that the pace and volume of our lives can make us sick, breaking us down and burning us out. Though he loves his work, he now makes sure to spend quality time with the people he loves―his wife and son, his family, and close friends―in beautiful Stratford, Ontario, Canada, where he lives. And every day, he does his best to be more, have more, and do less.
