How the ”Myth of More” leads to the destruction of self-care The Oxygen Mask Effect

    • Entrepreneurship

In an attempt to show our dedication to the job at hand, we often push ourselves in ways that can cause a loss of self-care. It’s easy to understand why overworking is tempting. It gets you ahead of the game, gives you more responsibility, and can ultimately lead to a promotion. Plus, your boss will be happy if they think that no one else can do the job. But here’s the thing: by putting in more hours than anyone else, you are actually doing yourself harm.




If you find yourself constantly working overtime just for the sake of making more money or staying ahead of the competition, it might be time for a new perspective on your work life.




Self-care is essential for your physical and emotional health. When you don’t prioritize self-care, it affects your physical health by contributing to stress and anxiety, while neglecting your emotional wellbeing. Self-care has a significant impact on work productivity, which can lead to burnout and ultimately, resulting in decreased work output and engagement and higher turnover rates and absenteeism.




Of course, many factors—stress at work—can put a strain on your daily life. But an effective self-care routine lets you set boundaries and focus on the important things in your life. And it can keep you from being overwhelmed by work.
