Burnout
Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle | Emily Nagoski, Amelia Nagoski
"This groundbreaking book explains why women experience burnout differently than men--and provides a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life. The gap between what it's really like to be a woman and what people expect women to be is a primary cause of burnout, because we exhaust ourselves trying to close the space between the two. 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 giving 110% and aren't recognized for it? How can you live happily and healthily in a world that is constantly telling you you're too fat, too needy, too noisy, and too selfish? Sisters Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., the bestselling author of Come as You Are, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of overwhelm and exhaustion, and confront the obstacles that stand between women and well-being. With insights from the latest science, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets and exercises, Burnout reveals: - what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle--and return your body to a state of relaxation. - how to manage the "monitor" in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration. - how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies--and how to fight back. - why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are key to recovering from and preventing burnout"--

This book was everything I didn‘t know I needed. I‘ve recently realized some things I‘ve experienced are related to stress, and this book really gave me some great tools to hopefully - finally - get a real handle on my stress. I highly recommend to anyone who needs some help dealing with stress.

#TodayILearned that practicing a skill doesn‘t matter if you don‘t sleep because it‘s not the practice that makes you better but the sleep after you practiced.

One chapter to go with this one. I‘ve gotten so many great things to work on/think about!

Never have I taken so many notes on the first chapter of a #selfhelp book before, but everything just made so much sense! I learned about the stress response cycle, how to complete it, and what happens when you don‘t. I‘ve always heard stress can kill you, but I feel now I really understand the why behind it! Loving this so far!

Jumping between books but

😂😂😂😂 You‘d better believe this was published in 2019 and I‘m planing to adopt this term of address!

DrawingSustenance Didn't Trump say something like that? 4mo
Megabooks @JulietBooks I think that‘s her point. He was a reality tv star on the apprentice. I still think back to Lisa Simpson on an episode 25 years ago talking about cleaning up after the Trump administration! 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @JulietBooks Got it in one: She‘s not giving him the title “President” on purpose .... which both amuses me (he doesn‘t deserve it until or unless he starts acting like one) and reassures me (that the reputation and respect of the office might be salvageable). @Megabooks me too but with increasing “how the AF did we get HERE”... 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 4mo

Its a brilliant book, although I do think perhaps it‘s misnamed and mistargeted: so far it‘s really about stress management in humans (it‘s seems a pity to restrict its specific target audience to burnout in women but let‘s see how it unfolds).

In other news, I think I need to work on my stress reading 😂🤦🏻‍♀️😂 The must been a middle ground somewhere but apparently my brain isn‘t having a bar of it!!!! 😂😂😂😂

I‘ve been told since I started teaching that a huge number of teachers leave the profession in their first 5 years. I‘m about to start year 6. I avoided being a part of that statistic, but I‘ve understood burnout since year 1.

This book goes so far beyond self-help I‘m glad it‘s in the health category instead. I read it cover to cover in a day and a half. I laughed, I cried, and at the end of it all I felt so much better about who I am and the life I‘ve led. I recommend it wholeheartedly to every woman on the planet and if you can ignore the fact that it‘s geared toward a female audience, guys can definitely get some value out of it too.
