The "Becoming Super Woman" author shares that she once wanted to "do it all" and "be all things to all people," but she was left feeling as though she was "nothing to herself." She says she consumed herself with work and believed this would lead to happiness, but despite all her accomplishments -- including becoming a network news anchor -- she says she never truly achieved happiness. Now, she's focusing on herself first before she tends to the needs of others.
The Doctors note that upwards of 68 percent of people say they experience burnout, and when Nicole hit her rock bottom burnout, she was suffering from depression, extreme stress, and suicidal feelings. It was determined that her traumatic childhood led to PTSD.
While writing her book, she found that 80 to 90 of women experience burnout and it can harm our health, and increase the risk for coronary disease and type 2 diabetes, along with issues regulating emotions.
When Nicole is dealing with a difficult situation, she says to:
Pause: Take a moment before you respond or react
Process: Allow yourself time to run through what is occurring and how you feel about it
Pounce: Nicole then suggests using a pros and cons list that is weighted by the importance in order to determine how to proceed
