Does This Describe You: Female, 30 and Burnt Out?

If you said YES, unfortunately you are not alone.

This recent aticle from Forbe's magazine, discusses the reasons why “Milennial” women are burning out in the workplace by the age of 30.

Typically, the article states, women (in comparison to their male counterparts) don't know how to schedule in relaxation time during their work day. They just go, go, go. And eventually they not only burn out but miss the opportunity to climb the corporate ladder.

“These early career flameouts are reflected through the corporate ladder. Today, 53% of corporate entry-level jobs are held by women, a percentage that drops to 37% for mid-management roles and 26% for vice presidents and senior managers, according to McKinsey research. Men are twice as likely as women to advance at each career transition stage. One rationale is that men are more likely than women to do things that help their personal wellbeing at work, thus negating burnout, according to the Captivate Network. Men are 25% more likely to take breaks throughout the day for personal activities, 7% more likely to take a walk, 5% more likely to go out to lunch, and 35% more likely to take breaks “just to relax.”

If you this is you, take some time, chill out and if you haven't already, read my book, Chill Out and Get Healthy and learn ways to destress your life and improve your state of emotional and physical health. You deserve it!
