Perhaps the most wildest but a sort of normal form of rest is simply sleep. For me it ranks second to meditation, which also a very great way to get conscious at the same time unwind your mind from daily distractions, indeed one of the forms of getting rest.

In order for us to function at optimal levels, we humans usually need at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep. Anything less than or more than that will cause us in-congruence, most likely fatigue.

Most of us  has a 9 to 5 job. Aside from mediation and daily chats with people at workplace which make us feel good. Top it that with at least 15 to 20 mins of nap will give your body an extra boost of energy. 

My sleep patterns are, usually common for most of us. I do meditate before going to sleep which allows me to have a very sound sleep at night, also, I sometimes read my way to sleep. And when I wake up early in the morning, I start with my daily prayers and a bit of meditation. 

I guess what separates people that have healthy sleep than those who don’t  are their daily discipline–may it be eating light at night or reading a book and/or meditate. We may pick up the most coziest sheet & pillow or maybe use your most comfortable socks at night, make a candle light, and get your favorite nightly scent at night, will hugely make a difference.
