Will might be described as motivation and determination, the spark of inspiration that keeps us working at life, day after day. The brain loves to find problems and work at solving problems. We need that. And sometimes a good rest is the best way to reboot the brain and refresh yourself.

Sometimes the simplest and best use of our will is to drop it all and just walk out from under everything that is covering us, even if only for an hour or so—just walk out from under the webs we’ve spun, the tasks we’ve assumed, the problems we have to solve. They’ll be there when we get back, and maybe some of them will fall apart without our worry to hold them up.
