"The state of being restored; recovery of health, strength, etc.; as, restoration from sickness. [1913 Webster]" I have heard it said a person cannot give what they don't have. Considering my profession, I need to be conscious of ongoing restoration for myself. 

Delicious food, running/cycling/lifting, friends, family, silence, my cats all restore a part of me.. meditation, prayer, yoga restore and bring breath back.

This is a time for each of us to be deeply honest where there is pain, emptiness, exhaustion etc and seek restoration. Our lives should flow with the active exchange and within that exchange, we are restored.
