Rest Quiz

Last year, I read Sacred Rest by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith and I was excited to see this author as a guest on The Crystal Paine show recently.

My favorite quote from the show was, "Give an honest no rather than a reluctant yes." Yes! That rings so true to me - I've reluctantly said yes to things and then regretted it.

She also mentioned her Rest Quiz found on her website and I took it. In the book Sacred Rest, Dr. Dalton-Smith talks about 7 types of rest: mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, social, sensory and creative.

I was really surprised by my results - I'm doing better than I thought in a couple of them and definitely need to think of some ways to bring rest to a couple of other areas. My three areas of most-needed rest were: Emotional, Social and Sensory. Hmmm - still processing those things and what that means!

If you try the Rest Quiz - I'd love to hear about your results!

Photos: had a little fun outing with this sweet girl on Saturday and stopped in for Frozen Yogurt to see they had done some refreshing of the space, she loved the rainbow sprinkles wallpaper!!

And, a couple of poses:

This was very eye opening, if not a little hard to take. It would appear I need to rest, PERIOD! The only area I scored well in was spiritual, so at least that's good! But I scored the highest in social and sensory. The funny thing is I am the poster child for introverts and not very social at all, but I do get pulled into social media, A LOT! it's easier for me to relate from behind a screen because I struggle with social anxiety and I am a highly sensitive person. If you not familiar with HSP, I would encourage you to look it up because it's not what most people think, for example, I do not get my feelings hurt easily. I am highly sensitive to bright lights, loud noises, continuous noise (radios and television on all the time), and crowds. That would explain my sensory issues. Thanks for posting this, it was very enlightening. I have the book but haven't read it, and I would also recommend Rhythms of Rest by Shelly Miller.
