Rest : Why You Get More Done When You Work Less Paperback
For most of us, overwork is the new normal. Resting means late-night TV binges or hours spent on social media.
We never truly recharge. In this revelatory book, Silicon Valley consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang offers a way for us to be more productive and fulfilled in all areas of our lives.
Working better does not mean putting in longer hours: it means working less and resting better.
Whether through daily naps, as Winston Churchill did in the Second World War, spending a week alone in a cabin like Bill Gates, or simply walking or playing a game, 'deliberate rest' is the key to getting more done. Drawing on emerging neuroscience, Rest is packed with tips for upping our downtime - from sleep to hobbies to holidays.
It's time to change the way we work, rest and play.
