In a world where being busy is worn as a badge of honour, where needing extra hours in the day and being powered by caffeine is part of the ‘norm’, choosing rest is a radical act. Rest is a vital practice—for our wellbeing, creativity, and performance—but many of us find it challenging to escape the shackles of urgency culture and allow ourselves to slow down and simply be.
To play the devil’s advocate here, how productive are you when you’re exhausted, overextended, and uninspired? As a freelancer or small business owner, you are uniquely placed to rewrite the harmful paradigms that keep us exhausted and uninspired and craft a new way of working that is holistic, sustainable, and centres your health and wellbeing.
In this conversation-style webinar, Lillie Brown will be joined by facilitator and somatics practitioner Emmie Rae to unpack the habits and beliefs that influence our complicated relationship with rest before exploring the generative nature of rest and how we can build it into our lives and businesses.
And one final thing: rest is not something you need to earn. It’s your birthright.
