I was a people pleaser too. I had to look deeper into myself to see why so I could stop it. I still need to be mindful of it but I am aware of it. It's a continuous process. I am really pleased you brought up this topic. It's so important and I am sure is of benefit to many here.
Nevertheless we tend to outlive men. One of the key changes has been the massive reduction in women dying in or due to childbirth over the last century or so. Some thing do get better!
@au0rei I recently watched a docuseries that talked about the importance of diet and exercise in warding off cancer and illness too. Like you, I’ve always known exercise is beneficial but it was explained so well in this docu that I joined the gym soon after 😄. I’m not a fan of the gym and have only been a regular once before I got pregnant, but have now signed up again. I’ve been trying to do other exercise outside the gym, but I think I’ll be more disciplined and consistent like this. I also recently bought a rebounder that I jump on about 10 mins a day, to help activate my lymphatic system. It’s time to get really serious about my health 😄😁.
