the current trend of putting your entire life in hold due to current economic conditions, life changes, or poor financial decisions.
a condition similar to hibernation when a person is severely limited by their financial status.
when life sucks because you're broke.
ever since being laid off last month i've been in ecostasis- i haven't gone out of bought anything new.
now that i have twins i'm in ecostasis. every penny i spend goes to the family and i never do anything nice for myself.
that person has been in ecostasis ever since graduating last year. they don't work and buy everything on credit with no way to pay for it.
