Am I getting enough rest? With Dr Lauren Tober Virgin Active Minds

    • Health & Fitness

Do you get enough rest? Beyond sleep, our bodies require times of rest throughout the day. Whether it's a nap, restorative yoga practice or taking 5 minutes in your car before heading into the house to be with your family, humans need rest to thrive. In this insightful episode, Mark speaks with clinical psychologist Dr Lauren Tober about the importance of rest. The two explore why western culture doesn’t prioritise rest and the detriment this can cause to our health and wellbeing. You’ll walk away with many practical tips to embrace rest and find better balance in your life.

Our favourite quotable moments:

“There is this real emphasis on how much can we do [and] how much can we get done in the day. And when we pause and take a break, it's like wasted time. When we're not being productive, we're procrastinating. - Dr Lauren Tober (3:45)

“For a lot of other people, it takes an illness or something quite drastic for us to really focus and change.” - Dr Lauren Tober (17:14)

“If your body is whispering, then listen to the whisper.” - Dr Lauren Tober (20:04)
