Do you or the people around you often call you lazy? If this sounds like you, we want to help you realize that you might just be mentally exhausted. And to remind you that it’s okay to take a break sometimes!
With society becoming more fast-paced and productive, people are starting to normalize the habit of overworking. Because of this, people tend to confuse “mental exhaustion” with “laziness” since they both look similar on the surface level. This video might help you remember why it’s important to take a break without feeling guilty.
