The 13 Hour Work Day

Monday, June 29th

Something happens when you’re under a tight deadline, or serving during the dinner rush, or studying for a big exam. Your thoughts and emotions quiet down, and before you know it, hours have passed. The distraction that work, errands, to-do lists, and projects provide can be such a respite for our busy brains. We use it like a drug to resolve discomfort. So, this week Nzinga dives into the reasons so many of us can’t stop working and helps listeners identify whether or not they have a work addiction. Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners. Have an addiction-related question? We want to hear from you!
