'Burnout isn't just overwork; it's lack of reward,' - Dr. Jacqueline Kerr

The cultural shifts that began in the late 60s and continued through the 70s brought new liberation for women.

But with that came ads like Enjoli's "Because I'm a Woman," which conditioned women to believe we had to do it all—sending us on a never-ending quest to achieve more each day.

These days, busyness is a lifestyle, and burnout has become part of the norm. But burnout can lead to BIG problems, like relationship deterioration, depression, substance abuse, and even illness. 

So, how can we stop being seduced by today's busyness culture?

Dr. Jacqueline Kerr is a mom, behavior scientist, and burnout survivor. In 2018, she left her position as a public health professor and began the fight to dismantle working mom burnout. Through her TEDx talk and her podcast Overcoming Working Mom Burnout, she provides information and solutions we can all use to change the social norms around burnout.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Jacqueline joins Anjel to share how burnout forced her to leave her position as a public health professor, where she was in the top 1% of most cited scientists worldwide.

She'll walk us through why the culture of busyness is so damaging and the most important thing we can do when facing parental burnout.

Listen in as Jacqueline shares the techniques she uses to help her clients recognize the earliest signs and take steps to 'stop burnout before it starts.'
