Perfectionism - Time to Say Goodbye (help reduce stress!)
Perfectionism can cause a lot of stress, in particular a great deal of unnecessary stress.
Perfectionism can lead us astray trying to live up to an unnecessary expectation forcing our body into stress mode.
When it comes to saying goodbye to the perfect the first rule is to try your best, but don’t be too hard on yourself.
Aiming for perfect is good in certain situations (such as a work project, university, working with clients…) but it is just as important not to expect every single aspect of your life to be this way.
There is no reason to aim for perfection 24/7 if you are forcing additional stress onto yourself and nobody expects you to be perfect either…...well maybe except yourself!
When things don’t go the way you expect or you make a mistake, stop and accept your mistake for a learning less and move on. Don’t beat yourself up and you’ll be well on your way to busting stress in no time!
For me, I always try to make wording perfect, and delay or forego my posts all together, but I remind myself: done is better than perfect!
What is one small thing you can give yourself a break on being perfect?
