[TOOL] Using Human Design to Address Perfectionism with Kelsey Abbott EP#391

May 2, 2021

In this week’s show, I am thrilled to bring you a “tool” episode where I share a lesser-known modality that can aid you in working with perfectionist tendencies. Um, yes, please! I hadn’t heard about Human Design until I was a guest on Kelsey’s Abbott’s podcast and I was like, “You mean, like, the way humans are designed?” I didn’t realize that it was actually a very specific process or tool to discover more about who you are, what your strengths are, and the obstacles you may face (like, a tight grip on perfectionism).

In this episode, I bring Kelsey onto my show to discuss the multiple energy types featured in the Human Design ideology, how they all uniquely struggle with perfectionist behaviors, and Kelsey’s favorite way to start dismantling and working with that behavior. If you find yourself worrying about what everyone else thinks if you aren’t fucking perfect, find yourself procrastinating because things just “aren’t good enough yet”, or constantly compare yourself to others, you won’t want to miss this episode! Plus, Kelsey shares how you can get your hands on your own free Human Design chart!
