Have you ever woken up from what you thought was a good night of sleep only to be exhausted the next day? Yep, it happens to me all of time. For so long, I had associated sleep and rest to be the same thing. However, I was becoming increasingly frustrated that despite quality sleep, I was still worn-out.
At the suggestion of a friend, I am reading "Sacred Rest" by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith. While so simple, the concept of breaking out sleep and rest as two distinct forms of recovery is incredible. Dr. Smith provides a free questionnaire to help you assess where you need rest most, and offers practical tips for how to achieve it. For me, I need more mental and emotional rest. How about you?
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
