Top Snippets - #118 - Burnout Part 2: Changing Your Relationship to Your “Madwoman in the Attic” with Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski
In part two of my series on BURNOUT, which is also the title of a new book by Emily and Amelia Nagoski, we’re discussing why you should stop fighting your “inner critic” (that voice in your head constantly shouting at you, judging you and shaming you). In reality, this “madwoman in the attic” is trying to tell you something valuable about who you are, which can be really helpful in moving forward from BURNOUT because you stop pretending to be who the world wants you to be. Tune in to learn about the bikini industrial complex (BIC) and why it sucks so bad. More important, what you can do to build resistance to the BIC and reclaim your “new hotness”. You’ll also learn the value in connecting to something larger than yourself to help move the world closer to what you long envision it to be, even if it doesn’t come true in your lifetime. I’d love to imagine a world free from diets, body shame, the BIC, and BURNOUT. Emily Nagoski, Ph.D., is a sex educator and author of Come As You Are: The surprising new science that will transform your sex life. Her job is to travel all over the world, training therapists, medical professionals, college students, and the general public about the science of women’s sexual wellbeing. Amelia Nagoski, D.M.A. (it stands for Doctorate of Musical Arts), is Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Music at Western New England University. Her job is to run around waving her arms and making funny noises and generally doing whatever it takes to help singers get in touch with their internal experience.
