Mental Recovery

A teacher cannot do better for himself and his work than to occasionally

close the office door and sit quietly by himself for a half-hour. At

such time crowd out the thought of all work, all planning, all worries,

and all demands. Bring the mind as nearly as can be into inactivity. One

will find in the hour when work is resumed that more of value will flood

into the mind, he knows not from whence, than he can catch and apply in

a great many hours. How many of us have times of refreshing. It is work,

work, hour after hour and the wonder is that we do so much and yet do so

little. Leave out some of the work and call activity of mind to our aid

and we will do more work with much less effort.
