Claudia’s latest book, The Art of Rest, examines the science behind our struggles for rest and relaxation in the 21st century, drawing on the results of ground-breaking research carried out in 135 different countries.

Much of value has been written about the benefits of sleep, but this book focusses on the activities which aid rest and enhance our sense of well-being, demonstrating in the process that resting and doing nothing are not the same thing at all.
