How does perfectionism get in the way of your health? On today’s episode, I’m joined by clinical and sport psychologist Dr. Eddie O’Connor who specializes in removing barriers to peak performance.

One area that non-athletes can focus on is optimizing sleep.

And while this isn’t our typical anatomy-based conversation, your body, mind, AND spirit can’t be separated without consequence.

Trust me, I was sweating bullets throughout most of this because Dr. Eddie saw right through my overachiever nonsense!
