The purpose of this page is to pull together in one place all the available information about constructive rest - articles, blogs, videos and audio resources. You'll find a variety of approaches to constructive rest here but there are three aspects that are pretty universal: 1. Lie on a firm surface; 2. Your knees should be elevated relative to your hips; and 3. There should (usually) be some support under your head. Most of the differences relate to what is most useful for you to think about (or not think about) while doing constructive rest. If you're new to the process, you might want to experiment with different suggestions.
If you know of any additional material, please send it to me, Robert Rickover, creator of this site using this Email contact page.
