Download: My recipe for rest


Rest is one of our basic needs. It can also come with a wholeeeeeee lotta guilt. Writing our recipe for rest can help us to factor it into our daily life (no guilt allowed!)

We’re so often taught to keep going no matter the cost to our wellbeing or health. But we all need rest. In fact, we all need different types of rest. Use the recipe for rest key at the bottom of the page to figure out whether it’s physical, mental, creative, emotional, sensory, social, or spiritual rest that’s needed. We could even pick a colour for each one so that when we write our recipe for rest we can make sure we have a mix of rest types.

Use the recipe for rest plan to include downtime in the everyday busy that we so often get caught up in.
