Abstract:

Do you think you would be happier if only you could lose weight, be a better parent, work smarter, reduce stress, exercise more, and make better decisions? You're not perfect. But guess what? You don't have to be. All of us struggle with high expectations from time to time. But for many women, the worries can become debilitating--and often, we don't even know we're letting unrealistic expectations color our thinking. Here, health psychologist Dr. Domar shows you how to break free from the perfectionist trap, with action plans that teach you how to: assess your tendency toward perfectionism in all areas of your life; set realistic goals; alleviate the guilt and shame that perfectionism can trigger; manage your anxiety with clinically proven self-care strategies; and get rid of unrealistic and damaging expectations.--From publisher description.
