"The impact that taking a vacation has on one's mental health is profound, most people have better life perspective and are more motivated to achieve their goals after a vacation, even if it is a 24-hour time-out." - Vacations Help Job and Health, But Americans Skip Them. by Patricia Quigley Aug 13, 2011 ABC News.

"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy." Exodus 20:8-11

This command is not about doing nothing, but rather not engaging yourself in the things you do for work. It is about enjoying God’s creation, and remembering you are loved not because of what you can do for God, but that you are loved because you are God’s creation.
