When everyone around us is “slammed,” it’s easy to feel guilty if we’re not slaving away on a never-ending treadmill of toil. By trying to compete about it, we’re only adding to that pool of water everyone seems to be constantly “treading” in. And all this complaining is having serious effects on our mental health.
Everyone is busy inside and outside the office at different times. We shouldn’t feel the need to make ourselves more busy and tired just so we can feel the same way.
You can answer emails and attend meetings all day along and still not get anywhere. We should celebrate time management and quality of work rather than living up to fatigue. We still need energy to enjoy life.
