Stress Management for Living, Teaching, & Parenting

Stress and Perfectionism

To live your life to perfection sounds just about perfect, doesn’t it? Don’t be fooled, this tip will have you realize why aiming for perfection is flawed and what you can do about it.

Perfection is a goal that you should not strive to achieve because it can prompt a crippling condition, anxiety, and overly critical self-evaluation.

Excellence can be reached—but not perfectionism. Striving for flawlessness and setting excessively high standards is a burden no one should carry.
