Sacred Rest: How 7 Different Types of Rest Affect Your Day-to-Day

We are so excited to have Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith on our podcast this month. She is an author, national speaker, and doctor of internal medicine from the Birmingham area. Her latest book is Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity offers ground-breaking insight on the seven types of rest needed to optimize your productivity, increase your overall happiness and live your best life.

In this episode, you'll hear Freddie Albaugh and her discuss the strain of achievement, people-pleasing, how enjoyment and joy aren't necessarily the same thing, as well as how applying rest in the seven different areas affects relationships in family.

Dr. Dalton-Smith defines sacred rest as the rest required that is used to restore the energy we regularly put out, and she has defined how there are actually seven different types of rest and that napping or getting 7-8 hours of sleep isn't enough to be truly rested.

Listen to the episode now and then visit Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith's website to take her online rest quiz and find other resources for the overstressed to help deal with their work-rest imbalance and find actionable answers to the thriving lifestyle they desire.
