The Art of Rest
Many words have been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. This book draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on: ‘The Rest Test’, the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken. It was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries and revealed how people get rest and how it is directly linked to your sense of wellbeing.
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.
A spritz of Twilight body spray has been known to help ease your worries and soothe your mind, and this book aims to do the same. This book features a specific chapter on the benefits of bathing, especially in the afternoon just before dinner. After reading this chapter, Lush Perfumer and Co-Founder Mark Constantine has taken to bathing at 4pm everyday, and strongly recommends it, along with this book.
