What Kind of Rest Do You Need?

I know as a busy Momma there are many days when I am exhausted and running on fumes, thinking all I needed was a nap. However, I recently found this quiz and was surprised at the results.

As it turns out there are 7 different kinds of rest that we need as individuals and our needs change frequently:

Physical: The chance to use the body in restorative ways to decrease muscle tension, reduce headaches, and promote higher quality sleep.
Mental: The ability to quiet cerebral chatter and focus on things that matter.
Spiritual: The capacity to experience God in all things and recline in the knowledge of the Holy.
Emotional: The freedom to authentically express feelings and eliminate people-pleasing behaviors.
Social: The wisdom to recognize relationships which revive from ones that exhaust and how to limit exposure to toxic people.
Sensory: The opportunity to downgrade the endless onslaught of sensory input received from electronics, fragrances, and background noise.
Creative: The experience of allowing beauty to inspire awe and liberate wonder.

I know I am tired and I know I’ve been a bit moody lately but my results shocked me at just how tired I am.

My results

[Below are your personal rest deficit assessment results. Use these results to help you see which types of rest you already excel at and which ones you need to focus on improving.
How To Interpret Your Results:
Based on your input, the type of rest with the highest score is the one you should focus on. It is the primary type of rest you are missing in your life.

If you score 0-15: You are getting adequate rest in this area
If you score 16-25: You are experiencing rest in this area but would thrive with more.
If you score 26-35: You are feeling the effects of your lack of rest and need a change.
If you score >35: Your life is negatively affected by your lack of rest in this area.

Category Scores
Physical Rest Score: 30
Mental Rest Score: 23
Emotional Rest Score: 18
Spiritual Rest Score: 10
Social Rest Score: 15
Sensory Rest Score: 16
Creative Rest Score: 23]

It seems that the only areas where I am getting enough rest in are my spiritual and sensory so I guess maybe the few minutes of ‘quiet time’ I get in the mornings are paying.

My highest need seems to be for physical rest which was really a no-brainer because I know I don’t get to rest as much as I should.

At least now I know what areas to work on so that maybe I can feel a lot better in the upcoming days… being a Momma truly is hard work!
