For decades, societal pressures have had us scrambling to do more, achieve more, overcome more, BE MORE – all with the promise that we’ll feel accomplished, fulfilled, worthy … even happy.

Are we happier? Will it ever be enough?

Being productive isn’t necessarily about how you manage your time. It’s about how you manage your emotions.


In a world obsessed with getting more done, Toxic Productivity unmasks the hidden roots of hustle culture and dismantles the myth that “doing more makes you more worthy.”

In this timely and unsparing guide, psychotherapist and founder Israa Nasir offers research-backed insight on dynamics such as self-worth, shame, social comparison, burnout, and perfectionism that keeps us always busy but never satisfied. Nasir gives expert and tangible guidance so you can separate who you are from what you do.

Toxic Productivity will help you:

  • Recognize the emotional patterns that drive your toxic productivity habits
  • Cultivate a healthier perspective on achievement
  • Create sustainable habits for reaching goals that are authentically meaningful to you

It’s time to untangle yourself from the web of toxic productivity and embrace a life that is not just productive but profoundly meaningful.

Let this book guide you toward a transformative journey of self-discovery – helping you reclaim your time, energy, and joy.
