Busy Is Not A Status Symbol

"It takes courage to say yes to rest and play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol.” BRENE BROWN

Being the last to leave the office and then working more from home. Bouncing from one social obligation to the next. Fulfilling endless kid related tasks. Working even when we are on vacation. Not to mention the endless hours spent interacting on social media. These days, busy is the new cool.  But when does that leave time for self? We are constantly rushed, always stressed, never switch off. But the truth is, the harder we work, the less productive we actually are (according to studies). So maybe its time to stop bragging about how busy we are and start touting how rested and centered we feel.
