Overview

Many of us are experiencing a deficit in rest; our ambition and attention spans keep us constantly mentally overwhelmed or physically overworked.

How can we learn to rest better? In The Art of Rest: How to Find Respite in the Modern Age, Claudia Hammond uncovers the health benefits of the most restful practices. Hammond is an award-winning health broadcaster, author, and psychology lecturer. On her podcasts All in the Mind and Health Check, Hammond provides listeners with access to the latest medical research on mental and physical health.

Hammond collaborated on a recent study, 'The Rest Test,' in which researchers surveyed 18,000 participants from 135 countries to reveal the most popular forms of rest. The results were mindfulness, watching television, daydreaming, bathing, walking, doing nothing, listening to music, being alone, enjoying nature, and reading. By recognizing which activities you find most restful, you can better appreciate your downtime.
