*Shine* Under Pressure

🎤 ‘Under Pressure’ feel like your Tuesday theme song, Jen? Let’s change that 🙂 Call out real v. *imagined* pressure with this list.

We’re pros at throwing ‘shoulds’ & ‘musts’ at ourselves (ex. I *should* be the perfect employee, I *must* finish my entire to-do list)—but it can stir up pressure that isn’t real or helpful.

🗒 Today, create a ‘pressure list’ to check yo’ stress.
1. Write a list of all the pressure you’re feeling
2. Label each one as ‘real’ (is this a legit expectation from you/someone else?) or ‘imagined’ (is this expectation just unrealistic?)

Remind yourself: ‘I don’t have to carry *all* this pressure.’

P.s. The subtle difference between ‘pressure’ and ‘stress’

  1. Great strategy. I should be doing some of that myself! I think we are the ones who put the most pressure on ourselves. At least, people like me. I always suffered because I wanted to become the best possible version of myself. Useless to say that I failed all over again.
