Episode Summary

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. Her new book Becoming Flawesome, guides us through how to learn to be comfortable with our true, authentic selves, rather than trying to live up to others’ expectations or put too much pressure on ourselves. 

Kristina teaches us strategies to incorporate more self-love into our every day- and to be okay with it.

We discuss how to navigate the pressures society puts on us, and how to be perfect with being imperfect

And goodness knows, like many of you, I’ve fallen into the perfectionist trap. So what Kristina shares today is so enlightening because it helps us learn to live authentically and connect with our own happiness. 

In this podcast, and her book too, Kristina guides us to make choices for ourselves from a place of self-love, which is the best place to operate in. 

So you won’t want to miss all the incredible knowledge Kristina has to offer, so you too can live an imperfectly, authentic life full of self-love. Listen now!

“It does matter because self-care is something tangible and understandable. And even though it takes time, it’s ritualistic in its nature. And we humans– we like rituals.”

“Your relationship with the world is the reflection of your relationship with yourself.”

“Idea number one is maybe you don’t need to be perfect in loving yourself. Sometimes we think ‘I need to do it perfectly’– and that’s the beginning of the slippery slope.” 

“You can just be in the energy of beating yourself down OR you can be in the energy of really loving the practice of loving yourself.”
