Viva Editions: Books for Inspired Living Announces the Publication of Making the Most of Bed Rest

(PRWEB) February 02, 2013

Making the Most of Bed Rest provides a one-of-a-kind guide to turning recuperation into a productive and rewarding experience. Forced to spend months in bed during her first pregnancy and then again after a sustaining a bone fracture from a fall, author Barbara Edelston Peterson knows what it takes to survive—even triumph—over the challenge of a drawn-out confinement and prescribed bed rest. At the time of each medical emergency, she needed something that did not exist: a resource explaining how to best survive and be productive in such restrictive conditions. Towards the end of her first term of bed rest, Peterson knew she had to share her experiences, many discovered through trial and error in her and her husband’s journey to pioneer through bed rest. Making the Most of Bed Rest is the companion to prescribed immobility—a book loaded with compassion and courage, practical tips, and reminders of how to reframe your attitude to be positive and productive.

Barbara Edelston Peterson is a world-class triathlete and spokesperson for XTERRA as well as an ambassador for the popular brand Lululemon. Barbara has given motivational presentations to Google, Wells Fargo, the US Ski Association and the US Ski Team. Also the author of The Bed Rest Survival Guide and a contributor to Ms. Fitness Magazine, Triathlete Magazine, Women's Health, and Her Sports, she lives in Berkeley, CA.

"Curiously, given its title, this book helps you take steps. Step-by-step, Barbara Edelston Peterson shows you how to endure and grow when you really can't move--much. It is a practical blend of philosophy and psychology, first-hand experience, wisdom, wit and attitude. Making the Most of Bedrest is clear and do-able. It gives you permission to do the unimaginable: get help. Bed Rest has menus, exercises, personal projects (even ones using glue!), and tips on being 'wired.' One of the best section tells real-life stories of others who shifted from flat and flattened to upright."
– Linda Hawes Clever, MD, author of The Fatigue Prescription

"Having experienced bed rest herself, Barbara Edelston Peterson found she wanted solutions to myriad issues presented by her confinement. As a result, she's produced a comprehensive guide to help the new bed rest patient negotiate this experience in the most tolerable fashion possible."
– Hallie Beachman, M.D., M.P.H.
