Anxiety thrives on perfectionism. So the burning question to challenge anxiety is: 'Does everything have to be perfect all of the time?'
Are there some small ways that we can loosen the grip a little, and accept the less than perfect? It might be that you need to warm up to this slowly, so try some minor ways to embrace imperfection: Simple examples include wearing odd socks, leaving the house a little untidy, or not finishing the latest novel you have been reading (and you have been hating since chapter one!).
It is up to us alone to ease the pressure we put on ourselves.
