Cultivating a Rest Ethic

Rediscovering ease of being: cultivating a rest ethic as intentionally as your work ethic

About this experience

Against the perpetual busy and frantic nature of the world, compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, ‘ease of being’ may feel like a far-flung dream. How do we come back to ourselves, to our very core, in a way that helps us to find contentment and peace? Taking time for rest, for simply ‘being’, is a key part of rediscovering that ease.

Join Jess to explore what we mean by ease of being, i.e.:
- How important it is to set aside time to rest and rejuvenate
- What a ‘rest ritual’ could look like for you
- How to be intentional in allowing for rest and rejuvenation

Cultivating a rest ethic can help us to be more effective, find joy in our day-to-day and ultimately promote a sense of ease of being.
