Episode 10: The Myth of Busyness with Diana Faqiera

Today I've got Diana Faqiera, my personal assistant for The Glow Collective podcast, joining me today! A student coming back to the United States from Malaysia, Diana shares so much in this episode, including what it’s like being a young person spreading her wings, why she started a podcast on the topic of her experience in young adulthood, and why it’s important to pause and enjoy life rather than getting caught up in the hustle (or social media!).

 

Listen in as we chat about why checking in with yourself is crucial, what it means to be solutions-oriented in this mess we call life, and how to avoid the lure of toxic positivity. Diana also gets to ask me some questions, and she opens up about how she stays balanced despite keeping multiple balls in the air at once. You'll learn why the myth still persists that being busy is something to strive for, and why we should all be mindful of staying out of this trap.
