I'm so excited to have my friend and Restorative Yoga teacher, Kristine Whittle, on the podcast today talking about the importance of rest. Rest is different than sleep and it is so important! Particularly at this time, when we're all buzzing with a higher-than-normal baseline of stress if we're not careful and intentional about allowing our Sympathetic Nervous System to get a break. We talk about HOW to rest and how to fit it in when life feels busy and full. I'll see you there! Xo, Janeen

Our bodies have so much wisdom inside of them that tapping back into it through taking a moment to just breathe will allow that wisdom to rise to the surface and goto work, repairing what needs to be repaired, replenishing and restoring and revitalizing ourselves, our bodies, our minds or spirits. Our entire being is restored and replenished if we just give it a chance. If we don't have Thio, do a full on practice that takes up half of our day to tap back into that wisdom. Yeah, our bodies air constantly, giving us feedback. And it's a skill to be able to learn how to listen to it and then toe actually act on it to take care of ourselves to a point where we are operating in a place where we feel energized. We feel well, we feel like we're operating from a place of giving instead of constantly getting the life sucked out of us, because we're kind of in that output energy all the time, which is easy to dio as moms. It's easy to dio in the culture that we
