Listen to Rachel’s Interview

Meet Rachel Woods who feels find when riding her horse, Belle.

When you think about what you like to do when you’re resting, does it involve another person…or an animal?

Growing up on a farm with a big noisy family (lots of brothers), Rachel Woods had to share everything except for one thing — her horses. She learned to escape to her restful place when she was just a child, finding solace in the quiet of the barn.

To this day, Rachel still feels the most found with her horse, Belle.

In her interview, Rachel shares that spending time around Belle forces her to slow down — and when she doesn’t she can feel the effects physically and mentally. Rachel says “Rest doesn’t always have to look like doing something. It doesn’t have to be pretty or perfect or have an Instagram-worthy aesthetic. It can be simple, and dirty, and something that you’re comfortable with.”
