Resting your body is as important as stressing it with exercise. They are the opposite sides of the same coin! It seems like your are "doing nothing" but that isn't true! Maybe try meditation or some nice stretching and yoga (if allowed). Don't stress, in the course of your life you will balance exercise with rest, that's how you improve. So try your best to embrace it!
Loving yourself is an act of will. It doesn't just happen, you have to choose it.
