Saundra Dalton-Smith – How to Be Well-Rested

Aired Friday, October 16, 2020 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

Feeling rested? … Now there’s a challenge… Well, maybe not, according to this week’s guest. If having a long-term or chronic condition wasn’t stressful enough, this year seems to have piled on constant stressors that have left many of us feeling completely exhausted.

So when I heard about board-certified internal medicine doctor Saundra Dalton-Smith’s book ‘Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity,’ I knew I had to have her on the show.

In this episode of The Autoimmune Hour, Dr. Saundra shares seven types of rest she has found lacking in most lives and why a deficiency in any of these types of rest can have unfavorable effects on your health, happiness, and more… she also explains:
• why rest can no longer remain optional and why binge-watching is not resting,
• how rest goes way beyond sleep,
• the seven types of rest and why we are feeling on the edge of burnout, and so much more

More About Our Guest:

Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith is a board-certified internal medicine physician and has an active medical practice near Birmingham, Alabama. She is an international media resource on the mind, body, spirit connection, and featured in Prevention, MSNBC, Women’s Day, Redbook, and numerous other media outlets.

‘Sacred Rest’ combines the science of rest, the spirituality of rest, and rest’s ‘gifts.’ It shows rest as something sacred, valuable, and worthy of our respect. Learn how to restore what’s daily being depleted, so you can begin living your best life. Learn more at https://ichoosemybestlife.com/

Can Things Really Change In As Little As Two-Minutes?

Aired Friday, September 4, 2020 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

Has your ability to power through ‘all-this’ been squelched? Are you feeling stressed, tired, and maybe even fearful of ‘what next?’ You’re not alone; that’s why I invite back to the show Tamara Green and David Dachinger of LovingMeditations.com/ back to the show…

What if you could calm down, refocus, and quell anxiety in as little as two minutes? Think about everything that would change if you could:
• Sleep better and focus more
• Not let anxiety rule your decisions
• Have more time for what’s important
• Let go of stress and angst effortlessly
• Vanquish fear and come from love and more…

About our Guests:

In 2013, David Dachinger and Tamara Green heard the six words that changed everything… “David, you have stage IV cancer!” Choosing to focus on the gifts rather than the difficulties, they stayed calm, grateful, and even optimistic, with David avoiding severe health complications from his treatment.

David’s results sparked his oncologist to ask what they were doing to remain so upbeat. “Whatever it is,” he said, “I want that for all of my patients and families!” It was a ‘light-bulb moment,’ and Loving Meditations was born.

Learn more about their One Minute to Calm activations for you to quickly shift into greater peace during daily stress or significant challenges at Loving meditations.com

And listen to our time together, including an original 2-minute meditation first on September 4th at 7PM ET.
