Extra day vs less than 100

What do you usually do when you're not 100%? I wasn't sick yesterday but was exhausted from work and just not all there. Pushed everything back a day but was wondering what everyone else does on days like that. Is it better to take that extra rest day and be closer to 100 the next or just do the...
