Do you have little energy to do the things you love even though you get plenty of sleep?
Sleep is only one part of recharging your batteries.
To gain a full charge, you need to practice the 7 types of rest: physical, mental, sensory, creative, emotional, social, and spiritual.
1. Physical Rest
3. Sensory Rest
Our busy lives can quickly overwhelm our senses...
...noises, lights, screens, music, conversations, notifications...sometimes all at once!
This not only can make it hard to focus, but can affect you physically, such as headaches, eyestrain, and ringing in your ears.
4. Creative Rest
5. Emotional Rest
Bottling up your feelings can take a lot out of you.
This can lead to stress and resentment.
Find ways to be your authentic self and safely express how you feel.
6. Social Rest
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Extroverts get energy from others and welcome frequent social interactions.
Take a break from work to socialize with friends and recharge your batteries.
Introverts feel drained after being with others and need time alone to recharge.
Take a break from social activities and schedule alone time to recharge.
