“Take rest. A field that has rested gives bountiful crops.”
—Ovid, ancient Roman Poet
Mono-cropping occurs when a farmer grows the same crop in the same place for many years in a row. It disproportionately depletes the soil of certain nutrients essential for optimal growth.
A strategy used to optimize productivity of the same field is crop rotation. This is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar or different crops in the same area in sequenced seasons, allowing the soil vital recovery time.
Where and how can and will you insert more frequent or longer periods of rest and sleep into your 24/7, workaholic, overwhelmed days, to lead a more bountiful life?
