Sluggishness. Boredom. Lack of concentration. Too many of us pour another cup of coffee and accept fatigue as the inevitable side effect of hectic lives. Dr. Matthew Edlund shows us there is a better way. (and it's not just sleeping more!)
This groundbreaking program will rewire your body, improving your productivity, creativity, and sense of well-being. Experience the extraordinary benefits—including dramatically decreased stress and increased energy—of the four types of rest:
- Physical: From deep breathing to the "UnNap," learn how to vanquish stress in seconds.
- Mental: Practice key strategies of relaxed concentration, and marvel at how much more you can accomplish.
- Social: See how even walking to lunch with a coworker creates a new sense of security and support.
- Spiritual: Experience a connection to something greater than the self, the key to internal balance.
The Power of Rest introduces one powerful technique each day, many of which can be accomplished in a minute or less. Rediscover the feeling of being truly alert and engaged with your body, your work, and the people you love.
