In response to the cultural internalization of overwork and burnout culture, Fika is a service where professionals can connect with others with similar and relevant life experiences to build a network of solidarity. Through guided post-Fika reflections, the service opens up discussion for valuable, outside perspectives on their relationship with their life and work—providing a structure to begin contemplating the cultural, technological, and political forces that permeate American work culture. Fika, like Siesta, is a historically observed tradition. Swedish in origin, it is a reflective, often social ritual meant to encourage workers to take routine breaks away from their desk.
