No matter how generous you are, it is harder to think about others and really benefit from giving time if you’re under pressure.
A child who doesn’t want to help with household chores all year may suddenly surprise Mom and Dad by setting the table or cleaning their room during the summer. Having the pressure off for awhile in the summer may be just what it takes for that child’s generous spark to be kindled.
If you don’t feel you’re being as generous as you could every day, make sure to get a little bit of extra rest. Take some down time this summer, reserve an extra night of rest this week, or find a few hours to relax. Sleep more or sleep better. Take the rest seriously and get the pressure off.
Generosity is harder if you’re under pressure.
