Try this if you dare! Just don’t burn the house down.🔥
.
You know those emails you procrastinate on sending? The ones that should take 3-4 minutes to write but end up taking 20-30 because you get all perfectionist (aka scared)?
.
Maybe it’s a follow up email to a client, or asking someone for a favour.
.
You know. THOSE emails.😒
.
Well, recently I’ve discovered what I call the “steak timer”.
.
Here’s how it works:
.
Put a steak (or tofu, whatever) in the pan or on the grill.
.
Fire it up.
.
Start writing the email.
.
Don’t turn off the steak UNTIL you hit “send” on that email!
.
When you start getting all scaredy-cat, just listen to it SIZZLE. And think of the horror of an overcooked steak.🤢
.
This can work with other things, too. Think of the “laundry machine timer” for your blog post or the “microwave timer” for some kitchen tidying up.
.
The more demanding your “timer” is, the better!
.
Admittedly, this may not be the best approach for everyone, so take it with a grain of salt (and maybe some pepper).😋
.
Do you have any unusual methods for motivating yourself?🌺

😱It took my client 7 days to get to the root of what was throwing her body off balance!

….one week of dedication and laser focus with accountability. ⚡️

Let me tell you what we did… 👇

My client came to me when her body was OUT OF WHACK!
She was getting dizzy spells, feeling anxious, light headed often and just felt OFF. 🙅🏻

We got started right away and the first thing I had her work on was her sleep and her stress. 💤
I had her tweak her nightly routine a tiny bit while I was putting together the rest of her program in it’s entirety….

We hopped on a call a week later after monitoring how she felt that week and tweaking her diet a little and...

✨Almost immediately after these small changes, she dropped 3 lbs and felt 90% better ✨

…. the thing is, sometimes we just need a little help and accountability to carry through with making lifestyle changes.

👉 Sometimes all you need is someone to help guide you and help monitor things to keep the needle moving in the right direction.

There have been plenty of times where I invest in help because I just can’t seem to see through my own S***).

And while its hard to see our own shit, I am rather good at seeing through others’ S*** ( if I do say so myself)
and one of my biggest skills is to help women MAKE the necessary changes they need to make in their health to FEEL GREAT.

Want me to see through your S***?! 😉 Let me know below what you are struggling with right now and I’ll help you work through it 👇👇👇

Now that school and work are on hold, I'm learning to sit with the emotions that I typically avoid. A lot easier said than done! These are the ones I usually experience: happiness, anger, sadness, anxiety, and exhaustion

We truly are our own harshest critics. I have to remind myself often that I’m doing the best I can and that life is not a competition for who’s got it all figured out🤷🏼‍♀️Social media is great for making us sub consciously seek to attain perfection in all areas of our lives. It paints pictures of people’s perfect lives - organised, successful, happy, financially stable, healthy...then we get down on ourselves when we question where we’re at as if it’s a race to who solves ‘life’s purpose’ race🤦🏼‍♀️ Everyones journey is different. I’m at the age that expectation is so high for a woman - if you’re married, have your own house, have children, have a successful job and go on holidays- you’ve got it figured out right? My point is, that there is no such thing as having it all figured out. Nobody does, because life isn’t meant to be ‘figured out’ and analysed to the point of missing out! Ride your highs and acknowledge your lows. Praise your efforts and stop comparing them to others. Don’t look back in 10-20-30 years and think, I missed the enjoyment of living in trying to figure out the whys and how’s of living. Life is an experience, the sooner we accept this, the sooner we will ‘figure out’ what’s truly important- the people we share the experiences with and the moments that we create together by being nothing more than just yourself ❤️

Just a few weeks ago this happened... My project (ON)RUST shown at the AKI Finals Expo. Had a great week with a lot of response. People understood my project although it was sometimes very abstract and were touched. They said it left an impression and recognized themselves or their family members. That is all I wanted 😌#exposition #artezfinals #artacademy #akienschede #artist #millennials #mentalhealth #anxiety #ink #illustrator #illustration #graphicdesign #handmade #animation #typography #book #blackandwhite #contrast #dutchdesign #designer #perfectionism #enschede #crossmedia

As someone who craved #perfectionism for many years and always fell short, this quote still hit me square in the face even though I’ve moved on from this “disease”
✨
How many times are we so hard on ourselves because we’ve fallen short, yet again? And instead of just moving on, we dwell on where we failed... why not be thankful that perfect doesn’t exist and instead choose to just keep #improving no matter what speed it be at. ✨
Life is short, see the beauty in being #messy , aim for #growth instead of sitting and ripping ourselves apart over something gone #wrong . What if wrong doesn’t actually exist, and instead it’s just another way to learn a lesson? #seeitdifferently #perfectiondoesntexist #messyisbeautiful #positiveattitude #enjoythejourney #growatyourownpace

I would argue there is also no way to be a perfect employee and a million ways to be a good one! As a working mom I’ve learned that I had to drop the idea that things at work and home would ever be perfect!

When asked that awful question in job interviews: "What do you consider your weakness?", I used to say that I was a perfectionist. I thought it was a way of getting around a curly question and still answer in a positive way, but I now realise that perfectionism really is a weakness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Perfectionists can be paralysed by their fear of making a mistake. 😨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've learned over the years, that when it comes to trying new things in my own business, I shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes. It's how you learn.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What did you answer when asked about your weaknesses in job interviews?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#Perfectionism and #Recovery .
My first college paper is due and I had one night to complete it. Sitting in front of the computer invokes a lot of bad memories. Before recovery, writing papers involved taking lots of trips to the fridge and bathroom.
I felt like my illness carried me through all the stress. In reality, the illness dragged it all out. It was just a way to block out the “you’re not smart enough” voice for small amounts of time.

It was a clever avoidance tactic: whats easier....Ruminating over my body or worrying about a grade I couldn’t possibly know the outcome of?
The fact that I couldn’t GUARANTEE an A made me want to go back and reread, rewrite or re-study. And on and on the cycle went of binging and purging to get through school work.

It’s a very vicious cycle for anyone who can relate. And as difficult as this seems, the fear of falling back should not stop you from moving forward with the things you want in life. Keep pushing.

Last night, I couldn’t wait to finish my paper. Three hours later, I did. Instead of being happy, I worried that I didn’t do enough and constantly urged myself to go back to add more.
I forced myself not to engage because I knew I did my best and anything from here on out is my perfectionism trying to demean my hard work. I decided that it was more important to learn how to “let go” rather than attempt to lock in the perfect grade. So I watched a movie, drank some wine and today I’ll hand in my first college paper that was written entirely without my Eating disorder📃

We’ve all felt overwhelmed at one time or another. We’ve all felt happy, felt sad, and felt lost.
Balance is so important as it is the base of everything else we do.
Make sure you never stop fighting to find your balance and chase your joy.

Why is this positive belief such a difficult one to actually, wholeheartedly believe? 🤔 Because obviously, we live in a society that constantly gives us messages that we aren’t enough. A multi-billion dollar beauty industry that bankrolls on our shame and insecurities. And not only that, conflicting expectations and rigid gender straightjackets of who we should be/how we should look/dress/behave/speak, etc. that send us into an overwhelming Shame spiral (i.e. I’m not good enough, there’s something wrong with me). 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♂️ AND most of us were never taught how to be resilient to shame.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In @brenebrown’s book “I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Isn’t),” she lays out some of these expectations...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Be thin, but don’t be weight-obsessed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Be Perfect, but don’t make a fuss about your looks and don’t take time away from anything like your family or your partner or your work to achieve your perfection. Just quietly make it happen in the background so you look great and we don’t have to hear about it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Just be yourself—there’s nothing sexier than self-confidence (as long as you’re young, thin, beautiful...) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“If we can’t pull it off — lose the weight, bake AND eat the cake, smoke cigarettes and look cool, stay healthy and fit, buy all the products, and at the same time, love ourselves for who we are—GOTCHA! We get trapped in a shame web. That’s when our fear state to turn to blame and disconnection. 🙅‍♀️ When we are feeling shame and fear, blame is never far behind. Sometimes, we turn inward and blame ourselves and other times we strike out and blame others.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I long ago learned the importance of compromise in marriage and in parenting and in friendship. What I’m only now beginning to learn is compromise as an act of love for myself. Type A, Perfectionism, Type 1...this is where my struggle lies. Learning to cope, striving to live well, with chronic illness is the ultimate crash course in compromise. I don’t want to carry guilt and dread everywhere I go. I don’t want to hold space for frustration and anger anymore. “I am careful with myself. I give my body what it needs.” These are my mantras now. I can’t wait until I reach the place where I don’t need to say them every day because they are simply truths that shape my life without conscious effort. #goals

I really should draw more. I kinda like doing it, but on the other hand if you want to get everything perfectly lifelike, perfectly shaded, etc, it can take so long to finish a drawing, and that always puts me off it. So I'm trying to draw less lifelike, just draw something that's merely inspired by what I see, so it doesn't have to look exactly like the image.
It doesn't help that a certain rabbit keeps jumping on my lap...

Yes you are looking at a picture of a bed .... Why you ask ? Because I need an accountability share this morning !!!
.
.
My amazing little #almostfiveyearold is wanting to help out more and more with #chores and took me in the bedroom to show me that she made our bed as a surprise this morning 👊👏........ ohhhhhhhhh but how quickly I noticed my thankful heart change to one of control and perfectionism - it took all of the self-control I had in me not to "fix" it to make it the way I wanted it to look 😭😭😭
.
.
Sooooo - today I vow not to change a thing about that bed and trust that my heart will slowly be changed towards this idol of control I face.

🇧🇷 Você já avaliou se o perfeccionismo está agregando valor a sua trajetória de carreira e vida, ou se está te deixando mais ansioso e irritadiço? Considere que ao invés da perfeição, você pode atingir novos patamares de felicidade tendo o bom, como o suficiente para você! 🇺🇸 Have you ever evaluated whether perfectionism is adding value to your career path and life, or is it making you more anxious and cranky? Consider that instead of perfection, you can reach new heights of happiness by having the good, meaning that good that is enough for you!

Perfectionism is the enemy of good enough. I tend to be a perfectionist, although I’m trying really hard to stop that way of thinking. I’ve started countless numbers of projects or pieces of writing, just to quit because it’s not perfect in my eyes. The flaws I would see would be hardly visible to anyone, but I could see it so I would scrap it. 🤦‍♀️ CONSEQUENTLY, I wasted a lot of time. Our worse judges are ourselves. Lighten up, and learn to love yourself. Being perfect is never going to be achievable so quit wasting time with that thinking. Challenge: Do something today that you have been putting off because you’ve been waiting for “just the right time”. The right time may already be here, but you just didn’t know it. Have a great day everybody! 💁🏻‍♀️💛💚❤️💖💙🧡💪🏼 #perfectionism #perfect #rollwiththepunches #loveyourself #justdoit #lightenup #keepgoing #motivation #inspiration #dontquit

Please join me for a 2-Part #Suicide Prevention Series starting on July 31. Register now via the link in my bio, and more information below.

Part 1 – Overachievers and Suicide
Overachievers share certain characteristics such as self-motivation, competitiveness, and #perfectionism. While these traits often propel individuals to achieve great #success, some may appear outwardly happy yet inwardly experience depression and suicidal tendencies.

Part 2 – Risk Factors of Psychotropic Medication Among Young Adults
Young adults are at a particularly vulnerable developmental stage with unique life challenges including academics, #relationships, peer-pressure and careers. These
combined stressors can trigger emotional difficulties.
Psychotropic medications can have extreme risks for this sensitive community.
I will explore the many factors contributing to the escalating suicide rate among these populations, how to identify the warning signs and what can be
done through an #integrativemedicine approach to prevent tragedies from occurring.

Needed this reminder today 💙

Mom guilt is like no other. Balancing out negative and self defeating thoughts about finding a way to be a good Mom, good partner, friend, daughter, Therapist is tough. Reminding myself to focus big picture, be grounded in having QUALITY time with my two littles and making special time with each of them.
There are not enough hours in the day. The days are long but the years are short. Focus on what is working well and being PRESENT.

I had been working out consistently for over 3 months including a diet overhaul. Drank more water, ate more greens, done more reps, ran longer, lifted heavier than I ever have and I STILL have cellulite, love handles, & not a small enough waistline. The scale even says I'm close to when I was 9 months preggo! 😯

As I embark on the first day of the last 6 months as a 31 year old, I cannot help but to express gratitude for the progress I have made during the first 6. 🙏
I've always strived for perfection even as little girl, & often times I'm left feeling like I'm not enough. I know that I'm a strong woman (not just physically) with enough grit and resolve for a few, however maintaining this iron "identity" is tiring and defeating. I've also come to realize it is also self-inflicted. •
I strive to no longer hide my truths, suppress my feelings, or downplay my achievements but instead, acknowledge and celebrate them, however small, on the way to becoming more of who I know I can be. 👑

Perfection is an illusion.

Because we all love control and practicality, we desperately at times seek hard for answers. Doing that we stop asking the most important questions like Why does this matter? What do we want to create? Is this congruent with my values? Etc. the power many times is in the question, not the answer. Sometimes we don’t have an answer and that is ok. It leaves room for reflection. #control #perfectionism #happinessinmotion #trusttheprocess #empowerement #courage #powerfulquestions

I’ve been wanting to incorporate yoga 🧘🏽‍♀️ into my routine for quite sometime. But to be completely honest, I love high intensity exercise - that’s my jam - so I was struggling to find a way to reap the benefits of yoga and still get that amazing feeling of finishing a tough workout. .

And you guys - I’ve found it! 🤗Since the new program my boot camp is doing is only 4 days/week, I’ve decided to do yoga on 2 of the active rest days - & today was one of those days! I did a routine that was familiar to me and that I remember being quite challenging - and I was surprised to find that I was able to get right back into it! Is my form perfect? Probably not, but for my first day doing yoga in a LONG time, I’m thrilled with how it went and how I feel! .
.
And friends - these two poses right here are HARD. So please don’t feel the need to do what I do right away. Start where you are and enjoy the process. 💚 .
Can’t wait to see what other gems are in the virtual yoga studio! ☀️

HEAD / HEART “The mind cannot comprehend the miracles of which the heart is capable. So it rebels. And like a tyrant trying to address the problems of the state while never considering tyranny itself an issue, the mind creates a storm searching for the solution to its own madness”
.
Did anyone else read the @guardian article this weekend on the ‘Intolerable rise of perfectionism’? Something hit home with me. Although not recognised as a mental illness, the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect can be just as sickening. Mental loops, habits and repetition of thought, infinitely striving and never satisfied creating a sea of pressure that follows you around from the moment you wake. .
.
Even #yoga became the same after I started a regular practice. My mind wanted me to be in the ‘perfect’ pose, to gather all the elements of having the ‘perfect’ practice and finally.. to be the ‘perfect’ practitioner. I started to identify the practice with my body, rather than the transcendence and feeling I was left with when I let that shit go. .
A reason why I never want to label myself X intolerance free (gluten, veggie, vegan, whatever!), a reason why I try to keep periods of my day unstructured and open to what takes my fancy in that moment, unhindered by checking the time. For me consciously moving towards a less structured life, actually keeps me in check from a want to pigeon hole, identify and define myself constantly.
Why limit yourself just to one portion of this big wide world?

Yesterday I chose to forgo my own yoga practice. In the essence of trying to make up time to finish thesis, I put attending a class on the back burner and allowed my breaks to be handstands in my living room. Capturing first handstand in living room of new place. A banana 🍌 back 🙊 but sometimes you have just got to accept your crap form when been crunched over a computer, pulling your hair out trying to write a discussion section. Sometimes it’s just appreciating you now have space to do a handstand at home.
There have been times over the last couple of weeks where I’ve been close to melt-down but my go-to is to get upside down or just cry. The end stages of PhD take sacrifices - sacrificing seeing friends, your own yoga practice, doing fun things. Hopefully, hopefully, the backwards steps in yoga practice will be forward steps in the mind and work.
Back to writing before teaching.

{ give yourself permission to make mistakes, take risks, to let go, and to be still when certain emotions become CRASHING waves.} Your worth is not dependent on what you do or accomplish. ✨You are enough.
