What's expected of women and what it's like to be a woman today are two very different things - and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. How can you 'love your body? when everything around you tells you you're inadequate? How do you 'lean in? at work when you're already at 110% and aren't recognised for it? This paradox isn't going away any time soon, so let's stop ignoring it and change our relationship to it. Twin sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski are here to help end the cycle of inadequacy, overwhelm and exhaustion, to go beyond banal self-help platitudes ('Practice self-care!?, 'Set boundaries!?) and confront the real obstacles that are standing between women and well-being. Combining the latest science-based evidence with prescriptive advice and a good dose of humour they reveal- how stress is a biological cycle that has to be completed before your body can return to a state of relaxation why rest, human connection and reducing self-criticism are key to recovering from and preventing burnout how to control the 'monitor? in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration why the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies - and the easiest way to fight back what you can start doing today to manage stress more effectivelyEye-opening, compassionate and optimistic, BURNOUT will completely transform the way we think about and manage stress, empowering women to thrive under pressure and enjoy meaningful yet balanced lives.
