Being a black and white, all or nothing thinker can cause a considerable amount of stress and anxiety. But that’s not all. Perfectionism can ravage one’s healthy lifestyle goals.
We all want to do our best, no matter what the circumstances are, but do you know what? Sometimes we fall short of our expectations. We sometimes overeat, miss a day of exercise, bypass a day of tracking. The list could go on and on. Guess what? That’s okay! What’s not alright is to throw in the towel. A gaffe is temporary and surmountable, and we have to look at each in that way. The perfection monster is elusive, so don’t spend your life chasing it.
