How Do I Cope with the Guilt of Working Mom Burnout?

Have you – or someone you know – had ‘working mother’ burnout? 

Dr. Susan Landers is a neonatologist who worked full-time in the NICU for over 30 years and raised three children. She achieved many academic and professional accomplishments, and she encountered challenges along the way, both in her career and in her mothering.

She achieved many academic and professional accomplishments, and she encountered challenges along the way, both in her career and in her mothering. Susan suffered through one difficult period during her midlife, after the birth of her third child, that propelled her to make specific choices and a career change.

She loves to share stories that reassure younger mothers to know that they, too, can become  “good enough mothers” even if they work full-time. She supports mothers with her social media posts, her blog, and her newsletter.

So Many Babies describes one overworked physician-mother as she journeys through medicine and motherhood raising three children.

While practicing medicine in the NICU full time for over thirty years, Susan Landers, MD met and managed many trials raising her three children, trials typical for many working mothers, such as breastfeeding, sibling rivalry, bedwetting, dyslexia, a gifted child, ADHD, a dog bite, and an adolescent eating disorder. The challenges of full-time practice and many twenty-four-hour shifts in the high-stress NICU always complicated issues with Susan’s children but also provided her the privilege of caring for thousands of critically ill newborn infants.

Susan always felt that her career and accomplishments in medicine were equally as rewarding as raising three children. It was the constant attempt to balance these two worlds – physician and mother - that was so daunting a task. Susan believes that most, if not all, working mothers are similarly challenged as they attempt to manage their work and being a good mother. So Many Babies describes Susan’s experiences of finding resilience and endurance throughout her career as a physician and mother. It is an entertaining and reassuring story for working mothers.

Are You Feeling Stuck, Overweight, or Burnt Out and Want to Give Up?

Byron Morrison was stuck, overweight, burnt out, and in a job that was killing him. He was lost and HE was the biggest stumbling block in the way of success.

Why do most people never achieve their goals, why do we sabotage ourselves? What does it really take to get out of your own way and take control of your life?

Have you felt that way? You do not want to miss Byron’s interview today.

You are One Decision Away From A Different Life

After years of being his own worst enemy, Byron Morrison knows exactly how frustrating the never-ending cycle of hard work, expectation, and minimal results can be. Maybe You Should Give Up is Morrison’s answer to the question: how can anyone achieve their dreams if hard work isn’t enough?

It seems like every self-help book and personal development program is the same these days, preaching that if someone just does more and pushes harder, they can achieve the life of their dreams. This expectation doesn’t often work with long-term results, which leaves many people to face the unfortunate reality of never reaching their goals.

Why? Because despite their good intentions, they get in their own way, sabotaging themselves and becoming the biggest stumbling block in the way of their success.

Tired of going ‘round in circles, Byron Morrison realized he needed to do something different. He gave up—not on his goals and dreams, accepting a life of mediocrity lying on the couch—but on being controlled by fear. He gave up living in the past. He gave up comparing himself to others. He gave up on being so hard on himself. And he gave up putting off his happiness.

And it worked. He was able to get out of his own way and finally take control of his life.

Maybe You Should Give Up explains how to throw out the rule book, break the mold and do something different. Byron Morrison’s approach helps readers identify seven areas of their life that cause them to get in their own way and keep them stuck in a self-destructive cycle; he models how to give up on what holds a person back—to finally take control of the life they want and deserve.
