The Super Woman Survival Guide by Jess Stuart

Do you feel you are constantly juggling work, family and life? Does it seem like there are never enough hours in the day? Or do you simply feel overscheduled and overworked?

Author Jess Stuart explores the constant pursuit of perfection, where we try to juggle multiple roles in life. In her latest book, The Super Woman Survival Guide, Jess helps balance our busy lives. She discusses the evolution of the super woman, measuring up, imposter syndrome and self-care beyond spas (I particularly liked this!).

Ultimately, this guide is about mindfully managing your expectations, learning to balance busy lives and self-belief.

“Appreciate your strengths as you are, and tap into what makes you amazing without trying to be different, more or better,” says Jess.

If you often wonder why life is so hard, Jess explains how to take control where possible and make life less complicated. Her accessible writing is reassuring and instils confidence to succeed, on your terms.

“This book is not about changing who you are, it’s about changing the way you think about who you are. Freeing yourself from the pursuit of a superwoman ideal that’s unrealistic and is making so many of us unhappy,” she writes.

This year, many of us have gained a fresh perspective on our personal priorities as we navigated lockdown. If you considered long term changes, but haven’t been able to realise them, then you need this book!

Jess is a Wellington based author and cash who empowers women to be their best. You can follow Jess online.
