“I put my heart and soul into my work and have lost my mind in the process.” —Van Gogh
With never-ending to-do lists, packed schedules and busy family lives, it’s no wonder why women—and especially women business owners—are at risk for experiencing exhaustion and burnout. This can wreak havoc on our minds, bodies, productivity and relationships.
The author of Brilliant Burnout, Nisha Jackson, PhD, has also experienced burnout and shares how she conquered it in this relatable (and often hilarious) how-to guide. Dr. Jackson combines her personal experience and clinical knowledge to help women identify where they are on the burnout scale, pinpoint the cause of their stress and engage specific tools to regain their hormonal, brain and body balance.
The book is designed so that each chapter stands alone, dealing with a specific issue. Readers are encouraged not to read the book cover to cover, but instead, to skim the table of contents and choose the topic that resonates most with them. Chapter topics explain how stress can be triggered by a hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, a thyroid condition, weight gain, decreased sex drive, dietary imbalances and mood. Each chapter begins with a quiz to help women gauge how much a specific issue is impacting their lives followed by tips and a multi-faceted approach to get back on track.
With a focus on brain chemistry, Dr. Jackson’s step-by-step plan helps women get to the root of their problem and discover solutions to reclaim their energy, drive and creativity.
