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
