Do You Know How To Rest? Learning a Life-Saving Strategy

I have had a complicated relationship with “rest” over the years. My first awareness of this was when I found myself unable to step down on my foot without excruciating pain. It came out of the blue from one step to the next. One moment I could walk and the next moment I couldn’t. It
