Whoa - Gemma Hartley had me at FED UP. If you're wondering why you're so tired, have a listen to this podcast to consider the emotional labor you're putting out in your life. Gemma wrote a 2017 piece in Harper's Bazaar that that went viral - as in nearly a million share and over 2 billion clicks. (You read that right!). The piece focused on a hot issue for so many women: how women are typically the ones doing most of the emotional work around the home. Wonder what that is? Make yourself a cup of tea (Gemma's having English breakfast, I'm having cardamom cinnamon), lie down, and join us.
As always, I'd love to hear your comments below or on Facebook or Instagram. Be sure to check out the show notes to read her viral piece.
