Drawing on brand new research, this is an examination of rest and why it matters from Radio 4's voice of psychology.

Today busyness has become a badge of honour. We want to say we’re busy, yet at the same time we feel exhausted. Instead we should start taking rest seriously as a method of self-care and this book, inspired by ground-breaking research, can help us work out how. The Art of Rest draws on ground-breaking research Claudia Hammond collaborated on – ‘The Rest Test’ – the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, which was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries. Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different; it is how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies. And, as the survey revealed, how much rest you get is directly linked to your sense of well-being. 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.

‘The Art of Rest equips us with fresh research and information on how to rest more and rest better, to get the most out of life. Reading it is a rest itself.’
Matt Haig

‘A soothing balm for a frazzled generation.’
Adam Rutherford, author of A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived

‘A thoughtful and enlightening book, perfectly mixing anecdote and evidence.’
