When we expect things to always be perfect, we often set ourselves up for disappointment and stress. It may help if you adjust your expectations. The world won’t end if your quiche is slightly overdone. You are surely not a failure if you made 1 typo on the email you sent to your boss. Also, when it comes to tasks that are low priority, give yourself a break. Instead of making dinner from scratch each night, try some healthy packaged foods. Or eat on paper plates for dinner one night to make cleanup a breeze.
How can you let go of the need to always be perfect?
