Award-winning fitness professional and consultant shares a practical, accessible program to help women replace destructive perfectionistic mindsets with concrete strategies and life-changing tips.

Tired. Stressed. Overwhelmed. Just one more email, one more meeting with the kid's teacher, oh and lose that last five pounds. Today, women are striving for perfection more than ever -- and feeling like failures for not meeting unattainable goals. Health and wellness expert Petra Kolber knows this intimately; as a dancer and fitness professional, she's experienced the ultimately dissatisfying quest for perfection. Her Perfection Detox program helps women to overcome the unhealthy, unproductive demands we place on ourselves -- and others. Based on her popular workshops, Kolber's strategies help women to recognize and constructively root out the perfectionistic impulse to be critical of self or others and to harness the power of our own internal resources, willpower, and habits.

With simple steps and strategies such as adjusting your internal monologue, cleaning up your vocabulary to include more positive language, becoming a passionist rather than a perfectionist, and more, The Perfection Detox is an essential guide to a healthy, full, authentic life.

I loved this book! The author provided inspiring stories and guides to get us and keep us on track for positive self-improvement. She takes the approach of trying to demystify perfectionism and show how to take life bravely and show grit without trying to be perfect at everything. We miss too many things if we think we have to be perfect at something before we do it. The author also talks about social media and how the things we see on social media are highlights and not realistic examples of how to do something. This book has great tips and anagrams, such as FEAR (False expectations appear real) and SMART goals (Simple, Achievable, Measurable, Realistic, Timebound) I would recommend this book!
