Jesse Locks - The Superwoman Syndrome, TEDxGrassValley

jesse-locks.jpgIn the quest for perfection, we find ourselves sabotaging the very thing we need the most - ourselves. Jesse examines what are the symptoms, why we do this to ourselves, and how do we get off the treadmill to lead a more balanced life.

Because if I'm not happy and healthy, how can I be the positive force that my family, my community and my world needs right now?
