Burn Out: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle

The newest book from my favorite self described "sex nerd" Emily Nagoski and her sister Amelia Nagoski. This book addresses the physical and mental strain people socialized female experience from the mixed messages the world gives us. They discuss the science behind the biological effect it has on the stress we absorb, how to turn our bodies back into a state of relaxation, how to manage and monitor the part of our brain that regulates the emotional frustration, how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult to love our bodies and how to defend ourselves against it. This is more than a call to "lean in". It is an astute analysis of societal pressures that stand between women and well-being and the cycles of overwhelm and exhaustion it has on our bodies and how to intervene on them. It is also a call to affirm that we are enough just they way we are and wellness is within our reach. #EmilyNagoski #AmeliaNagoski #BurnOut #UnlockingTheStressCycle
