Unrealistic expectations can break you.
During the beginning phase of lockdown did you start with plans of doing something truly meaningful and productive?
Have you been pushing yourself to self-improve and focusing on your productivity?
If this is true it’s quite possible that you are feeling overwhelmed because you are simply not able to achieve the ‘unrealistic’ expectations you may have set for yourself.
Whether it is writing a book, creating the most complicated three-course meal for your family, working on your fitness regime or simply just hustling at work and that too without any break – Well this means you might be succumbing to toxic productivity.
Unrealistic Expectations lead to toxic productivity.
This is quite similar to workaholism or hustle culture
It refers to an unhealthy and extreme obsession with productivity, which is never ending and never enough.
It is an obsession with work where more matters, even if the quality isn’t that great.
It can get you overwhelmed to the extent that you can only see your self-worth when attached to the amount of work you are doing.
What are the signs of toxic productivity?
1. You work so much that it harms your personal relationships and health:
You are falling into the trap of toxic productivity, if you are ignoring basic human requirements like sleeping, eating, socializing and forgetting your other responsibilities.
2. Having unrealistic expectations :
its unreasonable to Expect the same output from yourself everyday, irrespective of the stressful situations or external factors that may disrupt normalcy.
3. Being restless:
If you feel guilty taking a break or time off and feel that your self-worth is reducing, you could be suffering from toxic productivity.
Most of us attach our self-worth to how many hours in a day we have worked or how productive we are, which is quite unhealthy.
It is important to work hard, but equally important to not work yourself out.
If you feel like you may be suffering from a case of toxic productivity right now, you are not alone.
The good news is, you can take simple steps to circumvent this habit.
