Burnout has become a sort of 21st-century epidemic for women.
The force and hustle lifestyle is second nature. Creating another way for ourselves to exist in the world when the culture around us screams "PERFORM BETTER. JUST COMPETE. MORE! MORE! MORE!" is quite the challenge.
Burnout doesn't come from our desire for achievement. It doesn't come from working too many hours. It doesn't come from not having the "right" work-life balance...
Surprisingly, I learned this hard and fast rule in a home that wasn't particularly religious. Not surprisingly, I learned it in a home that fits in with Midwestern US culture quite well. Christian (if you should ask), middle class, dad works, mom runs the family and house.
