What Is The “Snail Girl” Era And How Can It Be Beneficial For Your Mental Health?

Dear ladies, are you also tired of constantly proving yourself at work, working day and night to get that promotion you deserve? Earning to live the free independent life which is well, but unfortunately, you are unable to do that! Because most of your time goes into completing work hours in the office! Well, we are all girl-bossing really hard so we don’t miss out on opportunities for growth, however, for once, just slow down a little. Take a deep breath and relax for a while to enjoy the sense of fulfilment. Well, this is what the “Snail Girl” era is here to remind you about. Currently, trending on social media, the term “Snail Girl” promotes a more slow and relaxed lifestyle for women which we think can really be a good thing for your mental health, however, this is exactly contrary to what the idea of  “Girl Boss” dictates!


The term “Snail Girl” was first used by designer and businesswoman Sienna Ludbey and her essay was shared by the Fashion Journal Magazine. In this, Ludbey explained the term “Snail Girl” era which basically means a lifestyle for women that is slow and relaxed, and where “Work” is not the only priority in life. While most of the youngsters are all there for the hustle culture, Ludbey’s “Snail Girl” era is taking a different route and most women are quite supportive of it on social media as well!
