Quiet quitting: Why are a increasing number of people quitting their jobs quietly?

There are people who always work. That just at the thought of doing nothing for a short time they get into a state of anxiety. They are the same ones who feel the almost obsessive need for even the most useless commitments, so as not to sink into doing nothing.

They are the individuals who, unknowingly, are already victims of busy bragging and phobia, which are the consequences of the myth of productivity in which we are deeply rooted.
On the other hand, there are those who have carried out a silent revolution. A change that has to do with work and free time is known as quiet quitting.

As a result, rather than leaving their position because it is a source of stress and fatigue, employees choose to commit only the bare necessities in order to finally begin enjoying their free time.
