In this video presentation on the types of rest, at least three distinct types of rest are identified:

  • Active Rest. The kind that involves reduced activity in a tapering way, that leads up to the main event.
  • Passive Rest. This rest focuses on recovery and requires that you cease from the activity you were preparing for. Only after ceasing,can the rest come to you.
  • Restorative Rest. This rest is needed when the first two kinds don’t or cant get it done. The tiredness you feel is deeper in your bones. Its affecting your motivation. At this point you dont need the kind of rest that addresses what you do – busyness – you need the kind of rest that replenishes – ‘who you are’
