I won't even bother asking if you've felt the effects of Burnout. It's not about being clinically depressed, it's not about being a mom. It's about trying really hard and not feeling like you're getting the results you want. It can be related to any aspect of life.
Author and clinical counselor Julie de Azevedo-Hanks addresses this topic in her newly released book, The Burnout Cure.
While her main audience is LDS women, the information in this book is not exclusive, and in fact applies to women and men of any belief system.
From her years of professional experience and time spent on the lecture circuit, Julie noticed patterns among women - patterns of feelings of being overwhelmed, of not being able to succeed, of not being enough. Many of these feelings, she has found, stem from pressure from a misguided culture and even misunderstanding of Gospel doctrine.
In answer to the compulsion to 'do it all,' Julie offers gentle and thoughtful counsel and guidance in regards to the place(s) from where our beliefs stem, as well as how to proceed in life in a healthy way. The book includes sections asking questions and encouraging pause for reflection.
The Burnout Cure is filled with insightful, helpful information and ideas, intended to help anyone who has felt pressure and craved balance.
