Based on the premise that leisure has become a threatened resource and that work pressure and the anxiety of always being in communication barely allow for the enjoyment of moments of rest, this book explores the value of free time. Neurologists and psychologists have proven the importance of moments of leisure, moments that not only promote regeneration and strengthen memory, but that are also essential for creativity and for finding personal equilibrium. Describing the causes of a general lack of time and presenting a whole gallery of leisurely characters, this fascinating read stresses the importance of leisure time for creative activity, while also offering alternatives and outlets to the logic of "always-more" and "always-faster." "Partiendo de la premisa de que el ocio se ha convertido en un recurso amenazado y que la presion laboral y la ansiedad por estar permanentemente en comunicacion apenas permiten disfrutar del descanso, este libro explora el valor del tiempo libre. Neurologos y psicologos han demostrado la importancia de los momentos de ocio, momentos que no solo fomentan la regeneracion y fortalecen la memoria, sino que ademas son imprescindibles para la creatividad y para encontrar el equilibrio personal. Describiendo las causas de la falta de tiempo general y presentando toda una galeria de personajes ociosos, esta fascinante lectura subraya la importancia del ocio para la actividad creativa, al tiempo que ofrece alternativas y vias de salida frente a la logica del "cada-vez-mas" y el" cada-vez-mas-deprisa.""show more
