Mental Rest

Do you know that coworker who starts work every day with a huge cup of coffee? He’s often irritable and forgetful, and he has a difficult time concentrating on his work. The good news is that you don't have to quit your job or go on vacation to fix this.

  • Schedule short breaks to occur every two hours throughout your workday.
  • Keep a notepad by the bed to jot down any thoughts that would keep you awake.

Sensory Rest

Sensory Rest

Bright lights, computer screens, background noise and multiple conversations — whether they’re in an office or on Zoom calls — can cause our senses to feel overwhelmed. This can be countered by doing something as simple as

  • Closing your eyes for a minute in the middle of the day.
  • By intentionally unplugging from electronics at the end of every day.
  • Intentional moments of sensory deprivation can begin to undo the damage inflicted by the over-stimulating world.

Social Rest

Social Rest

This occurs when we fail to differentiate between those relationships that revive us from those relationships that exhaust us. To experience more social rest,

  • Surround yourself with positive and supportive people. Even if your interactions have to occur virtually.
  • You can choose to engage more fully in them by turning on your camera and focusing on who you’re speaking to.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Sleep and rest are not the same thing. I'll thank Matt D' Avella for getting it into my brain through his newsletter. This article was shared in his latest newsletter and I had a valuable insight on how these two terms are often misinterpreted.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
