What is rest? The simple question and versions of the answer

- Rest are a shift of activity! - someone`s wise grandmother will strictly tell. Or mother-in-law. Or mother-in-law. And in the day off all members of household, having put on backpacks and having taken Ferdinand`s dachshund under a mouse of children and the family favourite, sit down on an electric train and go to the dacha where the nature and fresh air. Having reached with three changes some Ivanovka, forty five minutes walk with backpacks, pets and small children actually on the site. And there immediately get to work according to the plan made by the progenitress because put - that a heap, and days off only two days, a half which, besides, leaves on the road.

Dig, drag, beat and weed weeds, hard and feverishly breathing fresh air until finally darkens. Which - as having spent the night in the dampened musty beds of a garden lodge and having hastily finished some affairs next morning, the family starts in a way back - with children, backpacks and buckets of apples in hands, forty five minutes on foot on station, then on an electric train with changes. After dark having arrived home, kosterya all on light days off, having got rid of backpacks, laundering of children and having cleaned off from - under nails black strips of country dirt, family members dead fall in a bed because tomorrow since morning - for work. Perhaps though it will be possible to have a rest there...

- Rest is travel, - my acquaintance says. - At home you will not have a rest. It is necessary where - nibud to go though for ten kilometers from MKAD, differently it is not rest... - and it goes to the sea for a month. To have a rest. Rest begins by tradition with week disorder of a gastrointestinal tract with a temperature, vomiting and firm intention right there, oklemavshis, to change tickets and to return to Moscow (and that you want - adaptation), then two weeks simply - pines with boredom, plying from the beach to the house and from the house to the beach with calling on the local market, very much radiating optimism and entertaining at each stage of the aching child. And that also the missing husband. Before the departure the child, as a rule, is enough some bronchitis or otitis, she looks for there, in the unfamiliar city, normal doctors, then it is lucky the child home with the reading off scale temperature where since a half-month finishes the cure of complications and consequences then she seriously falls down...

- Yes nonsense, - someone else says. - In Russia - it is not rest, but torture. Abroad it is necessary to go, here that. There the infrastructure developed everything that you want, you obryashcht - excursions, food, animators for children and for adults... This rest so rest! - but, having got back from a trip to solar shores to gloomy slushy Moscow, cannot return to normal in any way, for weeks being in apathy and repeating: “As I was tired!“...

- Eh, I will have a rest! - the acquaintance speaks, packing things to settle on planned inspection concerning a chronic disease. - Ten days will lie on a bed, to sleep, chew apples, to read the book and to do nothing! And you to me do not come, I not will neither be painted, nor to brush the hair in which - that eyelids! Beauty! Not to prepare, not to wash the dishes - only to sleep, eat and idle! Resort!

In three days the acquaintance, probably, having had pins and needles in sides, begins to ache and complain while she at last does not run from hospital, not dolezhav couple of days because “it crazy it is possible to go, here so to lie for days and nothing is PERFECT to do“...

- Here to me to sleep! Then precisely everything would be in a different way! - still someone dreams. And - about a miracle! - house meet halfway, having shown at last nobility, having taken away children, moving on the apartment on tiptoe, do not rattle in kitchen pans and once again do not visit a toilet not to merge there water. It is valid, well the person should sleep though in half a year of times. And our hero, having woken up in a midday with a headache, feels preotvratno...

Besides with a current of years you understand that after rest there will always be a hangover. Physical - like that acclimatization after a trip, and moral - while you had a rest, someone remained to perform on the place your work in loading to the, itself did not go anywhere; also coped, by the way. And not bad coped because without you nobody died and nothing stopped. And now, after rest, it is even more difficult to you to be put to an old strap... And from sense of guilt before given you an opportunity to have a rest and charged themselves your duties - anywhere not to get to.

Perhaps, sometime in the future will invent cure for household fatigue. Drank a tabletochka - and in a few minutes it was completely restored. As the pink hare with an enerdzhayzer. And to lie down does not pull, and it is not necessary to go anywhere, and, above all, there is no wish, and especially - to change activity.

Though for certain something similar is also in modern medicine, only, most likely, regular reception a miracle - means is very fraught.

Teach me to have a rest, and?
