532: How to Overcome Perfectionism and Self-doubt By Unapologetically Embracing Your Fully Awesome Self with Kristina Mand-Lakhiani

We’ve all felt the need to be perfect. Sometimes when life feels out of our control, we overcompensate and try to influence things we think we can change.  But this usually just leads to more exhaustion.  As a society, we often try too hard to be perfect. Whether it’s work, parenting, or self-care, the tendency of trying to be perfect often leads us to become more anxious and stressed out.  Especially in this busy modern world, we need to remind each other that just because we push harder and we try to accomplish more– it won’t always lead to success. So, how do we let go of striving for unrealistic standards of perfection, so we can take better care of ourselves?  Kristina Mand-Lakhiani is here to share that with us today.

EPISODE SUMMARY In the ever-changing world of technology, we’ve grown so much as a society with unlimited access to information. But as you and I both know, often times this ability to search for anything, anytime– from the palm of our hands– can be taken advantage of.  How often have we been told generation after generation that our patience and attention span is declining?
