As the title of this great book suggests, it’s more powerful than we may think.
, M.D. is known as The Rest Doctor (check him out at ). He’s the Director of the Center for Circadian Medicine in Sarasota, Florida (sounds awesome) and he’s an award-winning expert on rest, body clocks, and sleep.
This book is packed with Big Ideas on how we can optimize our lives by focusing more on the power of rest—not just passive forms of rest like sleep, but “active rest” techniques to restore ourselves physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually.
As The (Good) Rest Doctor tells us: “Rest is powerful. Effective rest can help you succeed by making you alert, whole, productive, and happy. It can also provide meaning, making you and your life both more interesting and more complex. With this book, you can learn the rudiments of rest, techniques that you can take with you anywhere. With a little practice, you can then apply these techniques to work, love, leisure, and spirit. It’s time to learn how to rest, to build inner and external strength, to feel healthy and alive, to obtain greater control of your life and consciousness, to get more time to do what you really want to do—and to do more with less.”
Let’s jump straight in!
