The Burnout Theory


Imagine having to wake up early in the morning, then wake up your kids, make breakfast, re-wake up your kids after they have fallen back asleep due to lack of supervision and make sure they get on the bus to school. Followed by you getting ready for work, sitting in traffic and somehow miraculously ending up at your desk at 9 am. Sounds stressful just reading it.

This is the reality for a lot of women. Even if you don’t have kids. The morning struggle is…well…a struggle. The Monday through Friday grind requires a lot of energy and don’t even get us started on what activities the weekend brings. We live in a time where women are no longer just women. We are super moms, powerhouse employees, fearless entrepreneurs, college graduates and daily chefs.

With all the expectations things can get more than a little hectic. If you don’t learn to manage those expectations with your own personal needs as a woman you can become a victim of burnout. Burnout is the ultimate wave of exhaustion. When experiencing this wave of exhaustion most women become easily irritable, dissatisfied with their work-life, and apathetic overall. We have a few ways you can avoid burnout before it happens!
