Claudia Hammond
The Art of Rest

At a time when ‘busyness’ has become a badge of honour, more people than ever are reporting feeling drained and burned out. Multi-award-winning writer and broadcaster Claudia Hammond (Radio 4’s All in the Mind) is on a mission to reverse this trend. Drawing on results from the ‘Rest Test’ – the largest global survey into rest ever undertaken – Claudia’s new book The Art of Rest explores the science behind the study and offers a roadmap for a more restful and balanced life. Come and delve into what makes us feel most refreshed and revitalised, and learn how we can all have a chance to recharge our batteries.
