Description

In this rewind episode, we dive deeper into what it means to feel "rested."

There’s a lot of messaging encouraging us to rest and be soft. But what should we do if we’re trying to take it easy, but still don’t feel rested? What even is rest? I’m closing out our Modalities of Healing series with a solo episode about how we can heal through rest, and what our minds and bodies need to feel rested (in addition to adequate sleep).

With so much happening in the world, it can be natural to have a “tired but wired” feeling when we’re constantly on alert. This episode explores what rest is on a physiological level, and shares techniques we can use to start feeling more rested to support our healing.

I also talk about…


  • Your “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” systems, and how they work together.

  • Habits and techniques to help you feel more rested.

  • How to create better mind-body synergy.

  • Defining what it means to be “soft” for yourself.

  • The importance of taking a break.
