The Power of Rest
Why sleep alone is not enough–and how to reset your body
Matthew J. Edlund M.D.
So you're not a "10" in every which way. But you're probably pretty spectacular in some way, and definitely good enough in most areas of life. If ever there were a time to stop beating yourself up for being human, it is now.

Rest is regeneration. "The Power of Rest" shows you how to use active rest - physical, mental, social, and spiritual - to control that regeneration, as well as maximize the effects of passive forms of rest like sleep.
Rest is necessary for survival. Active rest techniques, most of which can be accomplished within 60 seconds, can calm you in the middle of the maelstrom or revive you when exhausted - while improving productivity.
