Rest may seem like the most natural thing to do. It’s automatic. Kind of like breathing or brushing our teeth: it’s something we automatically do every day. And yet for many of us, rest isn’t part of our lives, at least not regularly, or at least not genuine rest. Many of us are too focused on striving, not letting ourselves to stop - we wait to rest until we’re so exhausted we have no other choice.
In this Mindletic live event, we invited a neuroscientist dr. Laura Bojarskaitė to discuss two types of rest: sleep and meditation. Why are they so vital to us? How do they influence our mental health? How do meditation influences the way we think? And how to have that perfect night's sleep?
