A sense of liberation and freedom will change your outlook today. Everything old is new again.
It's easy to get caught up in what's new and what's different when everyone else seems to be doing it as well. Sure, you can jump on the same bandwagon and go for a ride, but don't forget to be critical and ask important questions. Is there real logic and science behind this? Is it better than what is already available? Is it just the latest fad? Is this the same old thing dressed up to look new and different? Examine it in more detail or seek professional advice before you commit.
You can't expect other people to defend your interests and advocate for your needs at work. You will need to advocate for yourself.
