I would say so, yes. For example, if I'm feeling like I can't think of something to do / work on, just going for a walk or lying down on a bed for 15-20 minutes can get my creative juices flowing again. I think the key is to follow your intuition regarding when you feel like working and when you feel like taking a break. I've done that for so many years that I'm generally able to tell when I'm working on something because I feel genuinely motivated to, and when I'm doing it just out of habit, even though I really feel like doing something else with my time. Likewise with taking a break / recreation.

I would say definitely yes. 7 days work make one weak, as they say. I think it's important to spend at least a day doing something that gives energy back to ourselves. I don't always do it as much as I should, but I definitely notice the difference when I don't do it at all. Rest is good, do get some.

Definitely. For example, regular daily meditation for 20 minutes boosts my subsequent 'stickability' at what I'm doing, and reduces my need for sleep more than the time the meditation takes.
Also, one of the Paraliminals that Steve has blogged on and recommended at Paraliminals is titled '10 minute supercharger' and it really works for me.
