      Claudia Hammond - Festival of Ideas at Waterstones

      Much of value has been written about sleep, but rest is different. Its how we unwind, calm our minds and recharge our bodies, and its directly linked to our sense of wellbeing. Today busyness has become a badge of honour. We want to say were busy, yet at the same time we feel exhausted. Instead we should start taking rest seriously as a method of self-care and Claudia Hammond, BBC Radio 4s voice of psychology, helps us work out how.She draws on ground-breaking research that she worked on with a team from Durham University: The Rest Test was the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken and was completed by 18,000 people across 135 different countries.Discussing the activities which people find most restful, she explains why rest matters, examines the science behind the results to establish what really works, and offers a prescription for a new, more restful and balanced life.This is an event in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
