Hustle culture is sadly a thing these days; where people are encouraged to keep working, be it for their primary work, or for their own personal work, at all hours. This is all done under the guise of it helping you in the future, though it means that most people forget to enjoy our successes and all the little things that are good, right now; in the present. Though it can also be read as taking nature for granted and even family.
While a lot of people are good at finding time to spend with their friends and loved ones, some struggle. They might struggle because of being too busy at work or at home, but they might also struggle because of distance, lack of money and other stresses. It’s important to remember that being in touch with our friends shouldn’t break the bank, and if the distance is too long, then maybe even video calls can help.
These days it’s well known that people spend a lot of time on their digital devices, and often spend a lot of time on social media. Yes, social media can be an awesome way to stay in touch with loved ones, and extended communities, so it isn’t all bad. But at the same time, if you find yourself spending too much time on your phone, then maybe it could be useful to step away from it a little bit. That doesn’t mean an outright ban or anything, but it could mean picking up that book you’ve been intending to read for a while, or spend time with your friends and loved ones in real life, or on a call.
