    meaning

    God Bless!

    We are very well rested.


    Please, what's the meaning of this sentence?
    Does it mean, we pay a lot of attention to our rest and get rest regularly?
    or it means, we have gotten enough rest for the time being?

    Thanks!

    Re: meaning

    Thanks for the reply!

    When we say well-fed, it means regularly eating plenty of good healthy food, especially if this has made you a little fat.

    Well-rested or well rested, could not have the meaning in the same way?
    regularly getting rest?

    Thanks!

    Re: meaning

    Here's an example:

    "I haven't slept at all these past couple weeks, but today for some reason I feel well-rested."

    So you see, being well-rested is not the same as getting regular sleep.

    Generally, well-fed means you are eating well regularly, but it could also be used as follows:

    "I haven't been eating well recently, but thanks to the buffet today I was well-fed."

    A homeless man can be well-fed one day and be straving for weeks on end after that.
