PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT | Burnout & Recovery from the Stress Cycle

It’s no secret that our stress has gone through the roof in recent years. More and more women are reporting feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and burned out, and the external stressors we face are unlikely to change anytime soon. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that strand between women and well-being right now, Dr. Emily Nagoski explains what we’re up against and shows us how to fight back. In this session, she shares the difference between stress and stressors and offers practical, research-based steps to complete the stress response cycle and avoid or recover from burnout.
