In my (UK) idiolect "have sầu a rest" & "get some rest" are idiomatic, not the two phrases you give sầu.

I find a slight difference in meaning. To me, "have a rest" is neutral: I am going to rest, with no implication about how much I need it.

"Get some rest" implies that I have sầu a particular need for rest: either I have sầu been short of rest recently, or some major activity is expected so that I need to lớn be well-rested before it, or there is very little time available for resting, so I will avail myself of it.

Rest itself means physically taking time relaxing, so I would rather use rest just as a verb. And as a noun I would say get some rest.

To me (UK):

have a rest is synonymous with take a breakget some rest is synonymous with get some sleep (or at least try khổng lồ sleep)

More formally, rest as a countable noun means "break"; whereas rest as an uncountable noun means "sleep".

So khổng lồ the people that say "have a break/rest"...Do you also say "I need khổng lồ have a test" or "I need to lớn take a test", or "I need a test"?What about "I need to have a piss" vs. "I need khổng lồ take a piss"?"To take a "noun" " in most locations is acceptable.
