Summary

In our 24-7 global economy, rest feels like a luxury at best and a weakness at worst. We see work and rest as competitors - but what if they're actually partners in a productive, balanced life?
Blending rigorous scientific research with examples of writers, painters and thinkers - from Darwin to Stephen King - Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang exposes how we've underestimated the power of rest for our success. Though it's as natural as breathing, it's also a skill we can all learn to boost our creativity and productivity. Full of tips for upping our downtime, from sleep to hobbies to vacation, Rest is a new road map for finding renewed energy and inspiration - and getting more done.

Rest is productive

This is an excellent book that I strongly recommend. Like me, many people are 'addicted' to working - I know I get a buzz or fix from having a packed day but my cup empties taking me into unhealthy physical and emotional states. We learn to detach from our 'body' self and drive ourselves by our intellect's wants, shoulds, oughts, as well as our greed.
We need to learn how to stop, before exhaustion forces us to do so. This book offers very practical ways to manage our working lives. It shows that by working less we can be MORE productive. A great read/listen.
