Letting Go Of “Shoulds” So You Can Feel Less Stressed

The word “should” can carry so many emotions and expectations along with it. I used to live in a world of “should”ing all over myself and see it in so many of my clients when they first start meeting with me. The problem with coming from a place of “should” is that it puts undue pressure and expectations on yourself and/or others that can oftentimes just contribute to MORE stress and anxiety. In this episode, we’ll talk about how to let go of “shoulds” so you can feel less stressed.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why you “should” on yourself
  • What to do instead so you can let go of stress
  • How adjusting your expectations can relieve tons of stress and anxiety
