9780897934015: The Joy of Laziness: Why Life Is Better Slower -- and How to Get There

This surprise bestseller in Germany will change work and play habits -- and lives. It contradicts much popular thinking about how to lead a long, healthy and happy life, and it does so based on scientifically grounded arguments and research which shows that the key to good health, success and longevity is the CONSERVATION of life energy.

On the basis of the scientifically recognized Metabolic Theory, this book develops a program that can work for everyone. It explains the scientific correlation between life energy and longevity in an easy-to-understand way. The authors have found through their research that older but hearty and active people often do not follow the regimen we have believed was the secret to a long life. They are calm in every situation; they enjoy life, play sports in moderation, eat little and do not waste their valuable life energy. They are not excessively ambitious. All this seems to be the secret to vitality and good health.

The book contains valuable tips and advice for everyone who wants to stay healthy and live longer, energy-saving suggestions about eating, working and exercising, and quizzes to test your stress level, life energy and physical well-being.

From the Inside Flap:

Relax, already!

The early bird may get the worm, but late sleepers live longer. Sound too good to be true? Not according to The Joy of Laziness.

Every day we are bombarded with countless demands on our energy — hurry, frustration, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, work stress and so on. To feel good we engage in intensive fitness programs, competitive sports and radical diets. These "high energy use" activities actually take a toll on our health, accelerating the aging process, making us more susceptible to illness and shortening our lives.

But there is a solution. And it is ... laziness!

The authors — both former (and reformed) champion athletes -- explain why

* too much exercise can make you sick

* being relaxed and even-tempered makes you smarter

* fasting delays the aging process and lengthens your life

* sun and heat are the fountains of youth

* "doing nothing" actually does a whole lot of good

Based on scientific research called Metabolic Theory, The Joy of Laziness reveals why the speed at which we live affects our energy and longevity. The authors include quizzes to help evaluate stress levels, life energy and physical well-being. They also share advice on how we could all get a little more relaxation, protect ourselves from "energy thieves" and rediscover the health — and joy — of laziness.

This book could be revolutionary for everyone who wants to stay healthy, be happy and live longer.
