Full Title
Restorative rest : sounding the alarm on a culture of excess
Joseph D. Sherwin
"The author explores the impact of restorative rest on medical staff at Brooke Army Medical Center and the Cadre of the 264th Medical Battalion in San Antonio, TX. He sought to determine the efficacy of restorative rest techniques and tools in alleviating sleep deprivation and fatigue. By teaching the value of restorative rest as revealed through the Sabbath, the author intends to examine its effects on promoting greater levels of readiness and resiliency among Cadre and Staff. The author further intends to use the data derived from this study as a means of developing a tool that will be used to inform Commanders regarding the dangers of sleep deprivation within their ranks and how proper Sabbath practices and restorative rest might make for a more ready and resilient fighting force." -- Leaf [2].
