Are you exhausted from striving to be perfect?  When you push to be perfect, you may put yourself under more stress by trying to control things and over time this can potentially lead to chronic illness.  Today we are exploring the impact of perfectionism. In this episode, you will get practical strategies to release stress and anxiety and find acceptance of yourself. My guest, Vicki Smith is a licensed psychotherapist and coach that specializes in people pleasing and perfectionism.  Perfectionism can be a hard habit to break with the way we see everything in the world. We judge ourselves based on what we see around us when you need to be focused on who you are.  Embracing our shared human experience can help reduce our shame, because it reminds you that your setbacks are not unique and that you are not alone in your pain. Today Vicki brings her personal and professional experience and shares her  thoughts on  perfectionism and self-compassion.  Through mindfulness she helps you discover your true nature and to share it with the world. To live the life you’ve always wanted!  You can learn more about Vicki on her website: PowerToThePleasers.com Facebook @Power to the Pleasers and Instagram @power.to.the.pleasers  How do you sail through life?
