Well, with "woke" I think about being so anti-racist that you're racist again, being anti-male except when you need miners or some such because that's "typically male" and being so vegan that you can't have friends because friends are made of meat and you're against meat.
I mean, basically they're people with great ideas that could help humanity, except they implement it in the extreme which just makes it silly, dumb and unfair.
Even to the point where the people they're trying to "protect" don't agree with them anymore.
That, to me, is "woke", extreme social awareness (and possibly a mental illness or blockade caused by underlying problems like depression, boredom and/or the feeling of uselessness).

However, the post was about wellness and mindfulness, which to me isn't woke, but employee well-being which may also go a bit further than we're used to.
I guess it's "new age" or "spiritual" employee well-being.
So I replied about employee well-being and not about racism, sexism and veganism (although they could also be part of employee well-being).

By the way, did I ever tell you I'm a vegetarian?* Big Grin | :-D

* I really am, and not just because it's hip either, have been for 23 years, which was my own choice when I was 10 years old, but I'm just messing with you by telling you.
