Most people value a day off. It is usually a day off from school or work or some other daily activity that requires time and effort. A day off provides the opportunity to either rest or get caught up. Successful people understand the need for both. If you have been working hard and burning the candle at both ends in order to be successful, and rest has been put on hold, then a day of rest has been earned and should be utilized. Rest and recovery is essential for any improvement. However, if we have found ourselves less productive, in a season of procrastination or have had some other form of either voluntary or involuntary rest, then using the time to catch up on things that have fallen behind or even use the time to get ahead is wise. Days off are a break and there needs to be some intentional thought put into their use so that they are most beneficial to future goals.
