The Art of Rest by
Call Number: Craiglockhart 158 HAM
Drawing on a ground-breaking global study of rest, as distinct from sleep, Hammond's practical and inspiring book unravels the transformative benefits of quality downtime and the secrets of how to unwind. Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. The Art of Rest draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on: 'The Rest Test', the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries. The survey revealed how people get rest and how it is directly linked to your sense of wellbeing. 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.
