    If you’re like most people, chances are you’re not getting enough rest. Have you ever sat on the couch all day but still felt like you barely relaxed? That’s because, weirdly enough, not all rest is created equally. There’s different types of rest that our bodies and minds need to feel our best. Western Medicine says that we need 7-9 hours of sleep plus a half hour or so to get to sleep so that we can get into the deep sleep that allows our body to make repairs.
