12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT
Busyness is not a badge of honor. But in our society, we wear it that way. Being busy all the time is considered a sign of success and importance in a culture that tends to value productivity and achievement above all else.
Women who wear the badge of busyness are indeed busy. At work. At home. And everywhere in between. Busy is also often code for overworked, stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. But we feel obligated to maintain the busyness or even just the appearance of being busy to meet the expectations of others, to feel and communicate a sense of accomplishment, and to help prove our worth to the world around us.
We rarely stop to think about the negative impact our busyness (and the way we communicate it to ourselves and others) has on our lives and our careers.
But constant busyness can lead, inter alia, to burnout, poor mental and physical health, decreased productivity, missed opportunities, and a lack of fulfilment in our careers and lives.
KEY TAKEAWAYS | Join us to talk about:
- Why we’ve glamorized being busy
- How it negatively impacts both the way we think, feel, and show up in the world and what we are communicating to others
- How to cultivate a less busy mindset and life
