Sweet but Fearless Podcast

Aug 29, 2022

In this episode, we discuss Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith’s article on the 7 types of rest that we all need. Because so many of us are feeling tired throughout the day even when we get a good night’s sleep, Mary and Cooper talk about the rest types we all need to include in our life: physical, mental, sensory, social, creative, emotional, and spiritual. According to Dr. Dalton-Smith, “We’re suffering from a rest deficit because we don’t understand the true power of rest. Rest should equal restoration in seven key areas of your life.”

Not sure which area of rest to focus on right now? Rest can look and be different for each of us. Take the Rest-Test Quiz and start working on getting restoration. And remember, sleep and rest are NOT the same thing.
