Balance & other B.S. : how to hold together when you're doing it all

Harley, Felicity2020
There's never been a better time to be a woman - we can have it all! That's what feminism promised, didn't it? When Felicity Harley, founding editor of Women's Health magazine and whimn, felt really off kilter, she started talking to other women about their overwhelm. The floodgates opened. Turns out her girlfriends, colleagues and other mums at the school gate were also drowning in feminist guilt while trying to keep everything afloat; plagued by perfectionism, riddled with doubt, ruled by screens and hurtling towards burnout. As we juggle the roles of partner, boss, friend, mother and employee (plus a side hustle), balance has never been more crucial. We're obsessed with 'wellness', yet women's mental health and wellbeing are in decline. Using her own experiences, research and insights from leading Australian experts in health, sociology and feminism, and wisdom from smart women like Tanya Plibersek and Fifi Box, Felicity calls out the crap in 'cult wellness'. In her warm and inspiring way, she shows how you can cut through the B.S. to find clarity in the chaos, shed some of your mental load, and feel truly empowered in the middle of your wonderfully messy life.
