Necessary Rest: What It Means To Truly Restore [TJJS:EP359]

How To Truly Rest

how to truly rest

sSo… you know you need some downtime. You need some time to rest and recharge, but every time you do, that naggy, little voice in your head keeps hounding you about how lazy you are and all the things you should be accomplishing with your time. Or maybe you finally take some time to rest but your mind keeps spinning with all the things you need to accomplish and you find your “rest” is simply more time for you to ruminate on shit that stresses you out.

Sounds familiar, right? Listen, we live in a society that glorifies productivity, busyness, and accomplishment, so it’s no wonder that taking a break seems like a luxury and not a necessity. Unfortunately, our bodies aren’t wired to be such a constant state of stress and it’s likely that you’ve seen the effects of lack of rest somewhere in your life: zero energy, exhaustion, not being present with those you love, less sexual connection/desire, reaching for unhealthy vices, and perhaps even disease or other physical ailments.

So what the hell do we do about it? In this episode, I look at the common stigmas around rest, how to tap into what is truly restorative for you, and what exactly your brand of “rest and recharging” looks like. Get ready for a deep sense of relief. #yourewelcome

This pod explores:

  • The common places we totally sabotage our own rest (aka Not really resting)
  • How to examine the places you tend to bulldoze over your relaxation with to-dos, obsessive thoughts, and the never-ending “shoulds”… even during “downtime”
  • How to figure out exactly what needs attention in your life to create reprieve and what simple actions you can take to get some rejuvenation already
