What is Sacred Rest?

Gratitude Cafe Episode 157: Featuring Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith.

We are a society that praises being busy, the more that one can cram into a day and the fewer hours you need to sleep the more productive and successful you seem, but are you and at what cost?

According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, NIH (June 7, 2017) “Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels.

Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.”

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

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.
