How do you define "rest" and "restfulness"? Ours is culture that glorifies the hustle and burnout heroism. A culture that glorifies the myth that the harder you work, the more you gain. And then we wake up to find ourselves in an empty loop of workaholism, stress and growing dissatisfaction.
Flory Huang is the creator of The Rested Revolution, which "rejects both burnout culture glamorized as The Hustle and the colonial capitalist harm fixated on productivity and output at the cost of the whole humxn." She is a creator, guide and facilitator certified as a professional mindfulness teacher, restorative yoga teacher, conscious energy medicine worker and former personal training coach.
