Powered by RedCircle

Being ‘busy’ has become a badge of honor in our society – signaling to other people, and to ourselves, that we’re valuable, in demand, and hard-working. But, at what cost?  

Younger generations have abandoned the concept of working 40 hours a week, encouraged to “hustle harder”, “rise and grind” and encouraged by success stories from multi-company CEOs like Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk. It’s changing company cultures too with flexible work hours, and more and more working from home. However, the effects of a poor work/life balance can have adverse outcomes on mental health as they find themselves working long hours and struggling to distinguish the split between professional and personal lives.

Today on the podcast, we’re diving deep into ‘hustle culture.’ We’re talking about the surprising roots of where it came from, the impact it has on our behavior and whether we’re behaving in alignment with the type of person we want to be, and some practical tips to say ‘no’ to hustle culture. 

As we find ourselves becoming more and more squeezed by our schedules and responsibilities, it has never been more important to find ways to create space, ease, and balance in our lives. Listen to this episode to learn how.
