From the Back Cover:

Look Younger, Be Healthier, and Experience a New Kind of Energy

Sluggishness. Boredom. Lack of concentration. Too many of us pour another cup of coffee and accept fatigue as the inevitable side effect of hectic lives. Dr. Matthew Edlund shows us there is a better way. (and it's not just sleeping more!)

This groundbreaking program will rewire your body, improving your productivity, creativity, and sense of well-being. Experience the extraordinary benefits—including dramatically decreased stress and increased energy—of the four types of rest:

  • Physical: From deep breathing to the "UnNap," learn how to vanquish stress in seconds.
  • Mental: Practice key strategies of relaxed concentration, and marvel at how much more you can accomplish.
  • Social: See how even walking to lunch with a coworker creates a new sense of security and support.
  • Spiritual: Experience a connection to something greater than the self, the key to internal balance.

The Power of Rest introduces one powerful technique each day, many of which can be accomplished in a minute or less. Rediscover the feeling of being truly alert and engaged with your body, your work, and the people you love.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rest is vital to our well being. As important as adequate hydration and nourishing foods, the human need for rest is often overlooked and can be the first thing compromised when we are stressed and busy. We are having difficulty sleeping and even more often, never feeling truly refreshed. In The Power of Rest readers will learn about the crucial four types of rest: physical, mental, social, and spiritual. This 30 day innovative program is based on the author s years of research and experience with rest-deprived patients. Through step-by-step instructions, readers will learn how to engage the body s power to restore, renew and replenish. This program serves anyone feeling sleep deprived or fatigued as well as offering a potent program for those wanting to lose weight or heal. Also, the lack of cellular repair is a major contributing factor to aging. This program can reverse that tired look that often prompts the call to a plastic surgeon. Developed by a highly regarded physician trained in sleep medicine, psychiatry, occupational health, and internal medicine, Dr. Matthew Edlund brings to us the perfect blend of knowledge and experience. In this program, rest is literally restoration as Dr. Edlund skillfully teaches you how to repair, reproduce, rebuild, and renew the cells that determine our vitality.
