When Work Becomes Your Identity (Solo Episode)

Episode 15,   May 17, 2022, 06:22 AM

In this episode, we’re diving into the concept of “workism” and the effects of work on our personal identities. In America, we’ve created an idea that the meaning of life should be found in work, but is that truly the case? The dangers of associating self-worth and identity with a job can result in insecurities, anxiety and inevitable burnout. We talk about how not every passion needs to be a career, and the importance of setting boundaries in the workplace. 

We also touch upon: 
  • Moving past the mindset of “hustle culture” 
  • Who are we without our jobs? 
  • How the entertainment industry promotes the idea of workism 
  • Challenges amongst the millennial workforce
