Beat Burnout With a Better Night’s Sleep

29: The 3rd Type of God-Given Rest: Mental Rest

Do you have a hard time shutting off your brain?

You’re not the only one. In this episode, we’re talking about why it’s so important to declutter your brain and how to do it. 

We are working our way through each of the 7 types of God-given rest across 7 episodes, and this episode is all about rest type number 3 which is mental rest. 

Much like my desk, our minds are full of clutter all day every day. When you learn how to tidy up your mind and release all the junk, it’s life-changing. 

This is one of the areas of rest that I struggle with the most, so trust me when I say I get it, but I hope that I can share what I’ve learned with you so that you can get the mental rest you need. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to declutter your mind 
  • What mental noise sounds like to you 
  • The power of letting go of negative thoughts 
  • The signs that you’re deprived of mental rest
  • What you can do to get mental rest 
  • The peace that comes from learning to quiet your mind 

Training your brain to be able to shut off for just 5 minutes at a time is enough to start getting the mental rest you need. If you’ve never done this before, it’s going to be hard at first, but keep practicing every day using the tips from this episode, and it will start to get easier.
