    According to the 2018 Global Wellness Trends Report, feminist wellness is about 'new powerful intersections between women's empowerment, feminism and wellness', and it's one of the top 10 global health trends of last year.

    The irony is, while many women are more health conscious than ever, many of us haven't even been to the dentist in the past 12 months, arguably the most basic of all health appointments. Words like overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted, always on, burnt-out, fed up, over it ... I'm hearing these again and again from women married, single, with and without kids. Close girlfriends, mums at the school gate, single women in cafes, on social - my many conversations are proving we're all in this pressure cooker, feeling trapped, carrying a semi-trailer of mental stuff on our shoulders and riding the rollercoaster. We can't find the emergency stop button.

    The result of all this overwhelm is a new wave of health problems, mental and physical. We have the studies flooding in that women are unhappier, more anxious, depressed, more likely to burn out than men. Perhaps it's time we moved the conversation away from so-called 'balance' - balance is bull, burnout is real.
