Look Younger, Be Healthier, and Experience a New Kind of Energy

Sluggishness. Boredom. Lack of concentration. Too many of us pour another cup of coffee and accept fatigue as the inevitable side effect of hectic lives. Dr. Matthew Edlund shows us there is a better way. (and it's not just sleeping more!)

This groundbreaking program will rewire your body, improving your productivity, creativity, and sense of well-being. Experience the extraordinary benefits--including dramatically decreased stress and increased energy--of the four types of rest:





Physical: From deep breathing to the "UnNap," learn how to vanquish stress in seconds.





Mental: Practice key strategies of relaxed concentration, and marvel at how much more you can accomplish.





Social: See how even walking to lunch with a coworker creates a new sense of security and support.





Spiritual: Experience a connection to something greater than the self, the key to internal balance.





The Power of Rest introduces one powerful technique each day, many of which can be accomplished in a minute or less. Rediscover the feeling of being truly alert and engaged with your body, your work, and the people you love.
