Hustle is the act and result of hustle. This verb can
refer to getting tired from an intense activity, which does not
offer pause, or to being upset by a multiplicity of obligations to fulfill.
For example: "The new job imposes a lot of hustle on me, but I am happy
because I had always dreamed of this", "Five years ago, tired of the
hustle and bustle of the city, I went to live in the mountains", "We
had several hours of I was busy until we managed to get the system working again. ”
the notion of hustle is usually linked to some agitation or revolt. Faced
with the hustle and bustle, people feel nervous and fatigue, or may even suffer
from stress. Therefore, to reverse these effects, you must try
to relax and rest.
Stress affects our body and our state of mind; It causes joint pain,
difficulty concentrating, and general discomfort that prevents us from living
normally. Before reaching the point of resorting to drugs to fight this
condition, it is best to attack the root, those issues that
lead to stress.
We know that it is not always possible to modify our routine to
the point of turning it into a fairy tale, but it is also true that
there are always better strategies, aimed at making optimal use of our time and
energy, to minimize the idea that our day to day is a constant hustle. Whether
going ahead with certain tasks to avoid crowding together, getting up a little
earlier to feel less rushed in the morning, or even replacing negative thoughts
with positive ones can help us to be better.
Regarding the resources we have at our disposal to reduce the stress of
hustle and bustle, we should not underestimate meditation, much more than a fad,
frequent contact with nature, physical exercise, hot baths and, no less
importantly, the power of laughter.
Suppose that a socio-political movement plans to hold a protest
against the lack of response from the rulers to the problems of the
community. Several of the leaders of this movement, therefore, begin to organize
a demonstration that will take place in front of the Government
House. For them they are busy days: they must summon the neighbors, request
permission from the authorities to cut the streets and occupy the public space
and speak to the media to spread the initiative, among other activities. The
large number of tasks to develop are a sign of the hustle.
The hustle can also be noticed in everyday life. A mother
who has to prepare breakfast for her three children, take them to school and
then go to work, where she stays for eight hours, until she
returns home and cook dinner for the whole family, experiences an intense hustle
Nowadays, it is increasingly common to break with this macho picture in which
women are the only ones in charge of maintaining the house, and for this reason
there are also examples of men who must cook and take care of
children, in addition to playing or not a job outside the home.
Of course, the perception of routine as a hustle depends on each individual,
as well as the impact this has on their physical and emotional health,
that is, on their well-being. While even people who have the life they have
always wanted can feel the weight of obligations, the idea of
hustle is more associated with imposed and unwanted activities, which we must
carry out even if we don't like them.
