A recent episode of Brené Brown’s podcast Unlocking Us stopped us in our tracks and ping-ponged across the StyleBlueprint team inboxes, and then on to family and friends. We want to share it with you, too. In the episode, Brené interviews identical twin sisters Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., and Amelia Nagoski, D.M.A, authors of the book Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle. They discuss the physicality of emotion, the causes of burnout, the physical mayhem stress causes our bodies, and how we can move through this emotional exhaustion to actually heal.
We’ve all felt burned out at one time or another, and perhaps recently more than ever. We are overextended, overcommitted, overwhelmed and exhausted. This conversation unpacks the science behind our emotions and the hurdles and societal pressures that stand between us and our well-being … and how we can fight back.
