Tang Ping - Lying Flat ➶

Tang ping (Chinese: 躺平; lit. ’lying flat’) is a Chinese slang neologism that describes a personal rejection of societal pressures to overwork and over-achieve, such as in the 996 working hour system, which is often regarded as a rat race with ever diminishing returns. Tang ping means choosing to “lie down flat and get over the beatings” via a low-desire, more indifferent attitude towards life.

Tang ping can be considered as the Chinese equivalent of the American hippie counter-culture movement.
