Ep 73. What Barbie and Burnout Have To Do With Each Other (+ How They Impact You)


How does Barbie relate to burnout?


Barbie is an iconic representation of the “ideal woman” in society.


She symbolises the unattainable perfection that we as women often strive to achieve and the limitless potential that we as women have.


Sounds empowering, right?


Barbie can do it all, and while that may seem empowering, the idea that doing it all is what will make you happy and worthwhile is so deeply ingrained in our culture that it places an immense burden on women to achieve the unattainable.


In this episode of The Aligned Achiever podcast we’re exploring how Barbie relates to burnout in the modern women, how this relates to you and the steps you can take to break free from the cycle of burnout.




In this Episode We Explore:

  • What exactly Barbie has to do with burnout
