Our society uses “busy” as a badge of honor. We multi-task our way into exhaustion. We may get a lot done, but how much are we actually enjoying?

Neck pain, headaches, irritability, and difficulty sleeping or concentrating may send the stressed person to the doctor.

You need to get rest in the areas where you’re depleting yourself. There are seven areas where you may need rest:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Spiritual
  • Emotional
  • Social
  • Sensory
  • Creative
A nap won’t restore your creative stores. Going to bed early won’t ease a strained neck.

It’s hard to stop activity. Interject rest throughout the day to help your body in all of your activities. In fact, people work better when they take little rest breaks throughout the day.

Listen as Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss how to improve your productivity through rest.
