The Helper Personality Trait
Many holistic doctors who focus on mind-body medicine will also often say that those who suffer from chronic low-energy and immune issues often tend to have helper personalities.
This personality trait sees you putting others before yourself, becoming a caregiver or nurturer, or the friend or family member everyone else leans on. Unfortunately, that can often contribute to energy depletion issues over time unless this trait is managed with self-kindness and putting yourself first when you need to rest and recuperate. Having a helper personality trait is a wonderful gift to others but it must be balanced with self-care and self compassion to avoid getting depleted.
If you scored this as a challenging area in your RM Assessment, it’s essential to work within your energy stocks. This will help stop you from expending more energy than you have in your tank. You can also consider specific interventions that help support and improve energy over time, making you less vulnerable to chronic fatigue and immune-related symptoms. If you already suffer from these kinds of symptoms, you will see improvements over time.
