How to Conquer High Levels of Stress and Anxiety

Did you know that being a perfectionist can cause stress and anxiety?

In this episode, I sat down with energy synergist, Heather Rider and we talked about anxiety and what it really is, and how it relates to perfectionism.

I think this is a great episode to follow Dr. Kimmy’s episode because she briefly touched on anxiety and perfectionism as one of the types of procrastination.

Heather Rider is an anxiety coach and Imposter Syndrome educator who personally overcame high-functioning anxiety and Imposter Syndrome while working in a demanding Tech job. 

She works with clients from all over the world who want to take a nontraditional, holistic approach to healing anxiety.

She regularly writes and presents on the issues of perfectionism, Imposter Syndrome, high-functioning anxiety and other anxiety related topics.
