Cry me a river, I know. It's obnoxious.
But I think I might be on to something here.
I've really been wrestling with my internal dialogue in a death match, it seems.
Productivity + output = worthiness. That's what our society has told us.
But not so fast. The grind culture has given way to a more natural rhythm. Something less harsh and more forgiving and compassionate.
Why is it so hard to sit still? Be quiet?
What is rest anyway?
Is it a bubble bath? A nap? Night out with a babysitter? 6 months off of work?
Or a year? A lifetime? Whatever.
This is what happens the moment I try to sit still and be quiet. (bonus points for any Mel Brooks fans out there) 😂 😂 😂
And it turns out, at least in my circles, we are all struggling with NOT hustling, self-loathing/worth issues, setting healthy boundaries, the science of being stuck, laziness, and finding our true selves again.
So I decided to dedicate a whole podcast series on REST. But not how to nap. I mean, that's cool and all but we need to address all the real stuff bubbling underneath the surface contributing to the noise, amirite?
Even when you rest, do you ever really feel restored?
We are on E, y'all.
I recorded a solocast on what life has been like after I quit. It's been a lot weirder than I thought.
P.S. Got any experts who I should interview who are SUPER helpful around this topic? Send them my way!
P.P.S. I thought this was a joke but....omg. 🤦♀️
P.P.P.S. I wonder if I would care about what this guy says if he weren't so hot? 🔥🔥🔥
