"I haven't taken a sick day in 5 years," says Joe, every time someone else takes a day off.
"Judy is such a hard worker- she hasn't taken a day off in the 10 years I've worked here."
We all know the Joe's and Judy's of the world. Heck, maybe some of us fall into these very same patterns.
And if we don't, maybe we're right there applauding them for their "work ethic", their "perseverance", their "dedication to the job". Guilty? Me too.
What's more, when we end up taking our necessary sick day, we feel guilty, call ourselves lazy, and often see ourselves as less than the Judy's and Joe's out there.
But these patterns, and the way we applaud them, contribute to a world that promotes toxic levels of 'busy' at the expense of our health/mental wellness.
We don't see what goes on behind the scene's in the lives of Joe or Judy, and we don't talk about the negative impact this has on our own.
Friends, it's time to start talking.
Join us this week to discuss why busy/burnout culture is short-term, unsustainable, and detrimental to our health, wellness, the quality of our lives, and the quality of our work.
