Publisher's Summary

Staying busy is easy. Staying well rested - now there's a challenge.
How can you keep your energy, happiness, creativity, and relationships fresh and thriving in the midst of never-ending family demands, career pressures, and the stress of everyday life? In Sacred Rest, Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, a board-certified internal medicine doctor, reveals why rest can no longer remain optional.
Dr. Dalton-Smith shares seven types of rest she has found lacking in the lives of those she encounters in her clinical practice and research - physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, sensory, social, creative - and why a deficiency in any one of these types of rest can have unfavorable effects on your health, happiness, relationships, creativity, and productivity. Sacred Rest combines the science of rest, the spirituality of rest, the gifts of rest, and the resulting fruit of rest. It shows rest as something sacred, valuable, and worthy of our respect.
By combining scientific research with personal stories, spiritual insight, and practical next steps, Sacred Rest gives the weary permission to embrace rest, set boundaries, and seek sanctuary without any guilt, shame, or fear.

Critic Reviews

"'Once you get a taste of a well-rested life, nothing else will satisfy.' That quote is a nibble of the masterpiece you will feast on in Saundra-Dalton Smith's book Sacred Rest. Through a well-balanced weaving of her life's stories, substantiated research, and inspired selection of Scriptures, Saundra has created a perfect mix for challenging each reader to find their place of rest. I highly recommend this book as it's chock full of practical tips and you'll want to buy ten more for your family and friends, or use it for a book club or Bible Study." ( Heidi McLaughlin, international speaker and author of Restless for More, Sand to Pearls, and Beauty Unleashed)

A really valuable book, but be aware is Christian

First half of the book really good, very valuable, you should definitely buy this book.

Second half quotes heavily from the bible, frequent mentions of God and Jesus, biblical stories and so on. I would describe myself as spiritual not specifically Christian and I found the continual theme and mentions of the bible jarring and inescapable. I will listen again but stop at the end of part one.
