Dormancy, Hibernation, and Brumation are Periods of Rest for Plants and Animals

Brumation is a dormant period for reptiles. As with hibernation in mammals, their bodies shut down and conserve energy for the coming year. During the period of brumation, a reptile may not eat, drink, defecate, or move for several weeks.

Plants even take a period of dormancy.

I guess we all need a little rest now and again.
