Show Notes

In episode eight of building emotional firewalls, Nadja dives deeper into stress management.


Achieving work-life balance continues to be a long-standing debate and struggle for many. According to the World Economic Forum, one in four women are considering downshifting their career or leaving the workforce entirely, as the stress of managing home life and dealing with the depleting demands at work became simply unbearable. Hence, continue to talk about work-life balance sounds like a utopian concept for many women.

Stress is a phenomenon which keeps many people awake at night, anxious during the day, or feeling drained and fatigued. Stress in itself is not a good or bad thing, but how we perceive and manage stress is what will help us manage it.

Lean back, tune in and get ready to feel inspired, so you can embrace the woman with ambition you are!
