Live Fully, Love Boldly, and Rest Intentionally With These Best Life Academy Resources!

Rest Is An Act Of Courageous Self-Care

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 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.

By combining scientific research with personal stories, spiritual insight, and practical next steps, Sacred Rest gives the weary permission to embrace rest, set boundaries, and seek sanctuary without any guilt, shame, or fear.

Incredible book!!! Opened my eyes to so many false definitions of rest (i.e. escapism). And helping me see that rest can be an ACTIVE journey too. Discovered so many types of rest! I got halfway thru reading the physical book, then bought the audiobook too so I can listen and re-listen again in the car or when I do chores! It is well written, easy and fun to read. Very personable voice in the author's writing style. It was truly a breath of fresh air! Whether you are busy or exhausted or ultra successful or all is well in your life/world, this book is perfect for anyone and everyone to discover the beauty and benefits of true rest!! Our whole family (including my spouse and Elementary aged kids) are going thru this book together again now. Each of us are having fun discussions and "aha moments" as we read and listen together
