I think for many of us when we hear the word rest, we automatically think of either one of two things. We start thinking about sleeping, or we start thinking about just the cessation of activity, just stopping stuff. And that is not all that rest comprises of. I think the part that we miss is that rest at the core should be restorative. There should be some way that it's pouring back into you. And so for many of us, just sleeping or just stopping and not doing anything isn't restorative. And so we end up in a situation where, in a lot of us have experienced this. We go to sleep at night. We wake up the next morning and we're still tired. And it's because likely the type of rest we needed wasn't simply sleep. It wasn't simply a physical type of rest. It was one of the other types of rest that I talk about, and what I mentioned is that there's actually seven different types of rest, and so if you're trying to fix, let's say an emotional or social or creative rest deficit simply by sleeping, you're always gonna stay tired because you're not fixing the type of rest that you need. So what? What is the difference between sleep and rest? Sleep is simply just a physical type of rest. So with physical rest you have active and passive. And so sleep is a passive type of physical rest. You also have an active component of physical rest. And then you have these other six types of rest, including the mental, spiritual, emotional, social, sensory and creative. And so, as you can see, if you're focusing all of your attention just on sleep, you're actually not getting all of the different types of rest that you need. What made you decide to write this book? I burned out. What? Yes, ma'am. It was one of those things where I was really busy with in my career and had gotten into a situation where I put more focus on the getting thing done, then actually honoring God's word and spending time and rest and having a Sabbath and keeping it holy and doing the things that I knew were needed to really stay healthy mind, body and spirit. And so I got into a situation where it was all about the grind, all about getting stuff done, checking it off my to do list, you know, getting those accomplishments and everything and got to a place where I was just tired and it was, You know, when I say tired, I don't mean like I needed sleep. I needed it everything. I was so tired. Every part of me had gotten to a place where it's like God, if this success, I don't even want it. It doesn't feel good to live anymore. Whatever this is, it can't be your best for me.
