Why People-Pleasing Damages Your Health?
Do you ever feel guilty about not being ‘people-pleasing’ enough? Millions of people do, all over the world.
People-pleasing is the desire to be liked by others. It can cause people to overcompensate by doing things they think will make them look good, but which actually make them look bad. This is called “doing what you think, rather than what you know.” It’s very common at midlife and in menopause, because it makes us feel good about ourselves and gives us the sense that we are important and valued. However, it can have some negative side effects on our health.
In this episode of The Hormone Prescription Podcast, I interviewed Carmen Hunter about her story of significant experience of betrayal and abandonment to saying no and bringing back that power and honoring what was best for herself. She explains how the habit of people-pleasing can affect our health, and offers some suggestions for how to break this bad habit. Carmen Hunter has over 10 years of health coaching and has been educating and mentoring wellness practitioners for 7 years. She believes that diagnoses are symptoms of a larger health condition and that helping people get well depends on getting back to the basics of health without overwhelming them physically, mentally and emotionally.
Carmen offers practical solutions to these issues and shares her own personal experience in this area. This topic is essential for anyone who struggles with being people-pleasing. You will learn how to take back control of your life and feel better about yourself!
As with all my interviews, I hope that you will enjoy listening to Carmen Hunter’s insights and tips. I am sure that you will find them thought-provoking, informative, and useful.
