The Science of Sabbath: How Rest Helps Us Live Well in a Non-Stop World

I recently spoke with Emily McFarlen Miller, Religion News Service reporter about sabbath.

It had been a hectic Friday. By the time she and I chatted late afternoon, I’d already taught a 6:00 a.m. YMCA Barre class, two college courses, attended meetings, and prepped to lead a bi-monthly scripture study group.

I apologized to Emily for my mushy brain and verbose answers. She was gracious. When we hung up, I realized I needed a dose of my own medicine. We’d both accomplished our goals: Emily put together an informative RNS piece on the scientific benefits of rest, and I got nudge to remember to practice what I preach.

Enjoy and share Emily’s piece. The ask yourself: How might I embrace the science and benefits of sabbath this week? Share your intentions @jdanatrent.

Enjoy, read, and share.
