Getting a good night’s sleep is a hot topic, but what about rest – the vital process of unwinding, calming our minds and recharging our bodies? Sharing ground-breaking research uncovered through ‘The Rest Test’, the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken, broadcaster and psychologist Claudia Hammond counts down through the top 10 activities that people find most restful, explains why rest matters, examines the science behind the results of what really works and offers a roadmap for a new, more restful and balanced life.
