Author writes about work-life balance
An Ettalong author has written a book for women who were struggling to find a work-life balance.
Ms Laura Piccardi's latest book, Unfaked, asks the question: Are women working themselves into an early grave?
Ms Piccardi is a life coach and said she was prompted to write Unfaked after hearing from so many women who were struggling to find a positive work-life balance and were succumbing to stress.
She said her book analysed how the female empowerment movement had impacted on women's health, particularly in relation to lifestyle and employment.
"We're in the midst of a busyness epidemic," Ms Piccardi said.
"Although the world has evolved at an amazing rate, our bodies have not, and they simply can't cope with all the stress and pressure we're putting them under.
"I'm sick of seeing women struggle with their health, and indeed their lives, so I wrote Unfaked as a sort of guide to show them how to make life easier and get to the heart of their true health and happiness once and for all," she said.
Ms Piccardi draws on her years of coaching, studies, research and experiences to deliver a story that she believes will be all too familiar to most women.
"Through the fictional character of Debs, an executive who has reached the peak of her career and is burning out, the reader gets to experience very real issues like impostor syndrome, perfectionism, weight loss struggles, bloating, anxiety, fatigue and relationship challenges," Ms Piccardi said.
