Self-Care Series: Cultivating Self-Compassion for Perfectionist Tendencies
Let’s face it, today’s culture values perfection. We may feel pressure towards academic excellence from our profs to our parents. Our friends may judge us by how we dress or behave around them, and we may event start to believe that people are living perfect lives when we scroll through our social media.
As a result, some of us might experience perfectionist tendencies from time to time. These experiences may include fear of failure, disapproval or disappointment of oneself. Despite best efforts, it might make it difficult to cultivate one’s own self-compassion.
This workshop is designed to address those negative beliefs and thoughts about ourselves through self-compassion. We will explore how self-kindness, connection, and mindfulness can help us overcome setbacks as well as re-frame new approaches to goal setting.
This workshop is led by both by a professional health educator as well as peer health educator.
Registration link opens in October.
