For every woman experiencing exhaustion or diminished energy in these chaotic times; for every woman seeking greater peace, joy, acknowledgment, and strength; for every woman who wants to continue to excel and refuses to settle for less, this is the energy management book that is your guide to a new outlook and a badass life.
Dr. Arin N. Reeves has advised, coached, and supported hundreds of women who sought a way out of the exhaustion and pissedoffness that affects so many women in workplaces today. Through this work and her own experiences, Arin discovered how strong, resilient, and creative women really were in confronting the challenges they faced every day, and she wanted to capture their stories, their successes, and their badass spirits.
Through dozens of stories from real, badass women who have taken steps to be "in charge" of their lives despite circumstances that left them stretched too thin, stressed out, and just plain pissed off, Arin demonstrates tools and techniques you can use to better manage your energy all day, every day, to accomplish all you want to do and regain a sense of control over what really matters in your life.
The very short version of what this book teaches: identify what makes you happy, identify what pisses you off, then do more of what makes you happy and less of what pisses you off.
But. . .we all know it's not that simple. Synthesizing research across multiple disciplines and rejecting typical advice women hear (which often begins and ends with "just pamper yourself for a moment"), Arin journeys with you to uncover practical action steps and sustainable practices that will enable you to neutralize energy drains.
Exhaustion and pissedoffness are the reality for so many women today, but they don't have to be. Through this book, Arin offers a way for women to reclaim their energy and get in charge of creating lives that they truly choose to create.
