Exodus 20:8

Adequate rest is imperative for optimum health as it brings restoration and replenishes the resources we use.


Sleep is the most important medium for rest. Short naps, peaceful and relaxing environments, mental quietness and the avoidance of stress also contribute to rest for your body.


There are 4 sleep stages and we need to cycle through these stages uninterrupted to awaken refreshed and this contributes to optimal health.


Rest is imperative for restoring and supporting the body’s natural healing ability.


Short naps, peaceful and relaxing environments, mental quietness and the avoidance of stress also contribute to rest for your body


Sleep patterns also influence the secretion of cortisol, growth hormone and melatonin, which all aid in optimal health.


We need rest physically, mentally and physiological.


Rest for each organ is as imperative as rest for the whole body


The 7th Day Sabbath is a day of rest that God gave us to rest from our work, worry and cares. 


Restoration requires rest and relaxation because the body needs to renew itself


Avoidance of alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and other chemical substances is advised as they interfere with normal sleep patterns.


Create a quite atmosphere free of arguments, exciting TV and stressful events in order to wind down the day’s activities and prepare for rest.


A warm bath can help to relax you before going to bed.


A quiet bedroom, free of bright light and noise, properly ventilated and of a comfortable temperature aids in a good night’s sleep.
