Waterstones Says

Rest, as opposed to sleep, has been surprisingly neglected when it comes to sustained and comprehensive scientific study. As collaborator on the world’s most authoritative study on rest, Hammond understands both the benefits of getting quality down-time and the secrets to how to achieve it in the first place. A truly enlightening and ground-breaking volume.  

Today busyness has become a badge of honour. We want to say we're busy, yet at the same time we feel exhausted. Instead we should start taking rest seriously as a method of self-care and this book can help us to work out how.

The Art of Rest draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on - 'The Rest Test' - the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, which was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries. Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. And, as the survey revealed, how much rest you get is directly linked to your sense of well-being.

Counting down through the top ten activities which people find most restful, Hammond explains why rest matters, examines the science behind the results to establish what really works and offers a roadmap for a new, more restful and balanced life.

“For those who struggle to give themselves permission to rest.”

I really enjoyed this look at what seems to be a taboo subject in current society. Obviously the lock down due to Covid created forced rest periods for many which, as the author points out, doesn't really do any... More
