The way we human beings and our society at large condition us to behave in particular ways indeed is astonishing and can be very detrimental to a healthy lifestyle. When I was unexpectedly made redundant in my last job, it took me almost one full year to give myself permission to have a coffee on a sunny terrace in Barcelona and tell myself that this was ok (without a notebook or smartphone on the table). And this is just one of the many examples I can give of breaking with irrational beliefs on how you should spend your time, the worst of them all believing being extremely busy is considered to be desirable, even sexy. It is not. Rather the opposite as you suggest in your story. Which I totally agree with. Thank you for sharing Arianna!

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
