    Find your perfect balance!

    Perfectionism is an admirable quality, right? After all, what's wrong with working hard to reach lofty goals? But sometimes perfectionism can go too far--well beyond pulling extra hours at work to beat a deadline or cleaning the house until it shines. Toxic perfectionism can result in obsessive behavior, damaged self-esteem, depression, and even physical ailments.

    In The Everything Guide to Coping with Perfectionism, you'll find tips and techniques to help you recognize symptoms of toxic perfectionism and learn how to introduce flexibility and balance into your life.

    This easy-to-use guide includes information on:

    • The surprising link between perfectionism and procrastination
    • Eating disorders and the role perfectionism plays in their development
    • The relationship between obsessive behavior and anxiety
    • How toxic perfectionism manifests in children
    In addition, you'll learn that you don't necessarily need to "fix" perfectionism--you can mold perfectionist behavior into healthy habits and harness your high ambitions to create achievable and positive goals.
