So, let’s talk about mental health!

Perfectionism might seem like a great idea in theory (who doesn’t want to be the best at things and always deliver 100%?) however in practice it’s impossible to achieve, because nothing and nobody is perfect… so that means that perfectionist tendencies can lead to a lot of self-inflicted challenges that can have a negative impact on your wellbeing.

Joy is one of the loveliest of all human emotions in terms of how good it makes us feel about ourselves and about life in general, and the thing with joy is that while it can be influenced by external factors (like people and situations) it is 100% an inside job in terms of how you connect with it and  how you feel it. And since you’re the one in control, you can choose to focus on joy even in the midst of trying times. How? Well, ...
