I’ve heard it over and over again that 2019 is the year of self care, which I honestly think is great.

More people need to make their own well being a priority. I’ll say it again for the people in the back: more people need to make their own well being a priority.

To some people (read: me) self care means face masks, bubble baths, and a glass of malbec. To others it means spending more quality time with your family, friends, or pets.

But one thing seems universal: the need to spend less time grinding and more time enjoying.

How do we do this when we are told to idolize "the hustle?" Told to follow the grind wherever it leads us? Told that we are only successful if we put everything we have into our work?

Over the last few years we have fallen victim to what is now being called “hustle culture.” 

Hustle culture is the societal standard that you can only succeed by exerting yourself at max capacity professionally. Everyday.

Hustle culture does not sleep. Hustle culture does not take lunch breaks. Hustle culture is waking up Saturday morning and making spreadsheets instead of pancakes.

Hustle culture does not take into account what your goals in life really are. So, join Justine and I as we discuss hustle culture and how we avoid the trap it sets.
