Why Your Brain Needs More Downtime: Scientific American

Why Your Brain Needs More Downtime: Scientific American:
Tony Schwartz, a journalist and CEO of The Energy Project, has made a career out of teaching people to be more productive by changing the way they think about downtime. His strategy relies in part on the idea that anyone can learn to regularly renew their reservoirs of physical and mental energy. "People are working so many hours that not only in most cases do they not have more hours they could work, but there's also strong evidence that when they work for too long they get diminishing returns in terms of health costs and emotional costs," Schwartz says. "If time is no longer an available resource, what is? The answer is energy."
So, is this a trend in recent psychology research? Energy, and focus in place of time management.
Meditation, long-naps, and other tips?
