The Rest Revolution With Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith
Welcome to Where Is My Mind? A podcast about how we can better look after our heads and our hearts in the head-melty chaos of the modern world.
Somewhere in the fast-paced chaos of the modern world we’ve forgotten how to sit on our arse and do nothing. Alpha-athletes, hustle culture and the corporate world tell us that we must constantly push ourselves, that time spent resting is time lost, but it’s left us in a vulnerable place, experiencing burnout and feeling like failures. This is why we need a radical Rest Revolution, because rest is crucial to our well-being and allows us to show up as our best selves.
Niall is joined by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, a board-certified physician and author of ‘Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity’. After suffering extreme burnout herself, Saundra discovered seven types of rest lacking in the lives of those she encounters in her clinical practice and research - physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, sensory, social, creative, and the effects a deficit in any one of these can have on your health, happiness, relationships, creativity, and productivity.
