Toxic Productivity: Is It Dangerous or Not?
Are you so busy that it's affecting Your health? Your relationships?
Are work/business concerns haunting you in your sleep or while you rest? Is it reaching the point that it's taking you away from your family completely?
You might be experiencing toxic productivity. It is about being so into your work or business to the point that it becomes harmful to your well-being.
How to deal with toxic productivity?
ESTABLISH REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
- Align your goals/objectives to be manageable so it does not compromise your relationships.
SET HEALTHY BOUNDARIES
- Establish clear borderlines (time, days, circumstances) that you completely disconnect from work.
- Be at the present moment. Enjoy your time for rest and for family without feeling guilty.
LEARN TO LISTEN
- Get some accountability from your family and loved ones. It pays to listen to them because ultimately what we do is for them.
Here's something to remember:
Being productive is healthy but don't get to the point where it destroys you and your relationship with your family.
