Embrace Relaxation: Discover Your Rest and Digest Essentials

Welcome

Our goal is to create a resource to provide you with products and information to help you find more and better ways to relax and deal with life's stress. While it is normal for us to experience stress on our body and mind throughout the day, more and more of us are dealing with chronic stress and are maintaining an elevated stress response which takes a toll on our health as well as our relationships.

Rest and Digest is a state of being where the body can take a break from the stresses of the day and restore its energy. This can be done through different methods such as sleeping well, yoga, meditation or practicing self care. The goal is to find what works best for you and to create a routine that you can stick to. Taking some time for yourself each day to relax and rejuvenate can make a big difference in your overall wellbeing.

The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) is responsible for our rest and digest response, which is crucial for restoring energy and promoting healing. When this part of the nervous system is activated, the body is able to release itself from the fight or flight response and relax and unwind from the day's pressures. Being in the parasympathetic nervous system, promotes digestion, better sleep and helps us deal with stressful situations among many other benefits.

The purpose of Rest and Digest is to provide you with all the information you need to make beneficial decisions for your health - in one place. Please take the time to check out our blog posts, products and resources to help you on your journey to relaxation.
