Rest by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang
Silicon Valley consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang explains in this groundbreaking book, rest needs to be taken seriously and to be done properly, because when you rest better you work better.
Drawing on emerging neuroscience, Rest is packed full of practical and easy tips for incorporating rest into our everyday:
– Stopping work on a task when you know exactly what the next step is will make it easier to get started the next day, and will help you set a steady working pace
– Take a long walk when you’re stuck on a task; it will help stimulate new ideas and creativity
– Have deliberate rest periods – scheduled into your diary – and use this time on trying a new activity such as painting or learning a language
When you rest better you’ll find that it won’t just be your work which improves – you’ll have more time for hobbies, stronger relationships and you’ll sleep better, too.
