Get Outside.

Getting away from the world around you is one of the most important parts of celebrating the Sabbath. When you're surrounded by piles of paperwork, it's hard not to think about jobs or taxes. Similarly, when you're sitting at home--the same place that houses your leaky pipes and a stack of bills —it can be hard to truly embrace the spirit of the Day of Rest.

The Ten Principles

1. Avoid technology.

2. Connect with loved ones.


3. Nurture your health.

4. Get outside.

5. Avoid commerce.

6. Light candles.

7. Drink wine.

8. Eat bread.

9. Find silence.

10. Give back.
