    35 Perfectionism

    35 Perfectionism

    In this episode, Dr. Gina discusses what motivates perfectionism, how perfectionism is reinforced and praised in our society and its pitfalls. While perfectionism leads to positive outcomes such as a job well done, a positive self-image, being a great employee, for example, over time it leads to stress and burnout.
     
    Perfection is an unattainable goal motivated by a feeling of “not good enough”. It is a standard no one can live up to. It leads to poor sleep, it robs you of your joy, and you say no to things that matter to you. It can even lead to procrastination and broken relationships because no one can live up to your expectations. Dr. Gina proposes simple strategies on how to move past striving for perfectionism.

    30 Black Lives Matter Too.

    30 Black Lives Matter Too.

    In this episode, Dr. Gina explains why people are getting caught up in the semantics of Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter. Why it’s crucial right now to give a voice to BLM and step aside, for this moment in time, and listen. Each cause has its legitimate reason for being: the Women’s March, Gay Pride, Pro-Choice, etc. On a global level, it’s about the injustices and racism people of colour have endured for centuries. She speaks of the current state of society that has become self-absorbed and has lost the capacity for empathy and compassion. We have been too busy talking at the expense of really listening. This talk is about semantics, not politics!
