Do you take a sick day when you are 🤧?
Or do you battle through because you’re too busy 😱?
WARNING⚠️ not taking sick days is classic Flash Gordon Syndrome – you are the saviour of the universe with everything resting on your shoulders.
Organisations pay people to be sick 😷 🤒 🤕 🤢 🤮 🤧(we’re human, we get ill).
But there’s a persuasive culture that you only take sick days when you are at death’s door. 😵
AND that’s even worse with professionals who suffer from Flash Gordon Syndrome – where working hard becomes the value in and of itself.
It’s a sign that you are on the path to BURNOUT. 😳
Next time you’re unwell take a sick day and start looking after yourself (no one else will).
And if a colleague is in the office coughing and sneezing, look out for them, ask them if they need to be in and whether they could be at home resting.
