📚 Book Club: Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle
During this pandemic, many of us has experienced burnout. As a result, we have selected "Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle" by Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA as our last book club selection of 2021.
In this groundbreaking book, Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski explain why women experience burnout differently than men—and they provide a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they explain with compassion and optimism what we’re up against—and show us how to fight back.
Join us for what is sure to be a wonderful discussion!
