Today busyness has become a badge of honour. We want to say we're busy, yet at the same time we feel exhausted. Instead we should start taking rest seriously as a method of self-care and this book can help us to work out how. The Art of Rest draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on - 'The Rest Test' - the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, which was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries. Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. And, as the survey revealed, how much rest you get is directly linked to your sense of well-being. Counting down through the top ten activities which people find most restful, Hammond explains why rest matters, examines the science behind the results to establish what really works and offers a roadmap for a new, more restful and balanced life.

La nostra recensione

Fascinating, entertaining and lucidly written . . . If we accept that reading is the most restful activity . . . The Art of Rest ought to be equivalent to a scientific siesta. The only trouble is that this outstanding book is far too stimulating to be restful * * Observer * * Claudia Hammond's superb book reminds us of a truth that's too often forgotten: that rest isn't just an indulgence, but an essential part of a life lived well -- DR RANGAN CHATTERJEE * * bestselling author of The 4 Pillar Plan * * At a time when our waking lives appear to be more frantic and distracted than ever before, switching off has never been more of a challenge. The Art of Rest equips us with fresh research and information on how to rest more, and rest better, to get the most out of life. Reading it is a rest itself -- MATT HAIG A soothing balm for a frazzled generation -- ADAM RUTHERFORD * * author of A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived * * Not only is The Art of Rest an enjoyable read, touching on scientific evidence in a light, accessible manner, it delivers on its promise too . . . Reading, according to Rest Test participants, is one of the best ways to rest. So if you want to change your 24/7 lifestyle, opening The Art of Rest may well be a good start * * New Scientist * * The prolific and brilliant Claudia Hammond has done it again, this time with the science of how to make the most of our lives in work, rest and play -- KEVIN FONG * * author of Extreme Medicine * * A thoughtful and enlightening book, perfectly mixing anecdote and evidence -- ROBIN INCE An absorbing exploration of how and why we rest . . . As reading was noted to be the most popular way to rest though, delving into The Art of Rest is an intriguing way to spend some downtime * * The Skinny * * Praise for Claudia Hammond: Claudia Hammond is the ideal tour guide for this hugely enjoyable journey through the strange psychology of spending and saving. Mind Over Money is both a fascinating exploration of the ways money messes with our heads, and a practical guidebook for how to avoid getting fleeced - whether by others or our own irrational minds -- OLIVER BURKEMAN Part fascinating psychological exploration, part practical guide - exposing the myriad ways money messes with our heads and suggesting means by which we might get a handle on it * * Telegraph * *
