BIRMINGHAM, Feb. 1, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- A study by the American Psychological Association (APA) found that 73 percent of parents report family responsibilities as a significant source of stress. For many, the home has become as stressful as the workplace.

How can you keep your energy, happiness, creativity, and relationships fresh and thriving in the midst of never-ending family demands, career pressures, and the stress of everyday life? In SACRED REST: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity (FaithWords, ISBN: 9781478921677), Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, a board-certified internal medicine doctor, reveals why rest can no longer remain optional for families who want to live their best life.

Dalton-Smith shares seven types of rest she has found lacking in the lives of many - physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, sensory, social, creative - and why a deficiency in any one of these areas can have unfavorable effects on your wellbeing.

In SACRED REST, Dalton-Smith discusses these seven areas using the R-E-S-T method:

  • Recognize your risk
  • Evaluate your current position
  • Science and research
  • Today's application

SACRED REST combines the science of rest, the spirituality of rest, the gifts of rest, and the resulting fruit of rest. It shows rest as something sacred, valuable, and worthy of our respect. Accompanying the description of each type of rest are practical tips for recovery and improvement.
