One of my best friends is smoking again after years of interruption. Another one had so many urinary tract infections, before working on herself and her beliefs about sexuality, notably thanks to the books of a French OB-GYN (in French “Femme désirée, femme désirante“).
Personally, I am aware that I damaged my adrenals by working like crazy.
If our body behaves in one way or another, it is a way of trying to ring the alarm bell. The goal is to adjust our lifestyle according to what our body tells us (if you understand French, discover Thierry Casasnovas).
My friend just quit the law firm and is now working on getting her health and joy back.
The important seems to be to take into account our body signals instead of trying to suppress them.
