Take a Mental Break
Workaholics between 25 to 36 years of age are unable to disengage from work even after work hours. Social media blurs the boundaries between work and life which may cause burnout if they are unable to strike a balance for themselves. Research shows that contents contribution can increase personal satisfaction levels such as replying to emails. Most people choose satisfaction over balance when it comes to work which is detrimental to their mental health.
The editorial illustration with multiple symbolism aims to get attention from readers through using Alan’s Watts saying, “For when we fail to see that our life is change, we set ourselves against ourselves and become like Ouroboros, the misguided snake, who tries to eat his own tail. Ouroboros is the perennial symbol of all vicious circles, of every attempt to split our being asunder and make one part conquer the other”. It conveys the message that we will inflict problems on ourselves if we do not take a mental break.
