Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

This week we’re taking a look common midlife regrets in life and what you can do to prevent them.

Specifically, this episode is about the incredibly common themes of regret that author Bronnie Ware, someone who worked in palliative care, highlighted in her popular blog article, Regrets of the Dying and book, The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing. We’re also talking about what you can do to make sure you don’t have these regrets yourself. I call this “regret-proofing.”

Bronnie Ware cared for people in palliative care and after years of working closely and developing meaningful relationships with people who were dying, she realized that the way they talked about their regrets fell into five key themes or categories.

She shares insights that you can learn so much from. Knowing what these common regret-related themes are can help you take specific actions to make sure you don’t also have these regrets.

One thing’s for sure, everyone regrets having regrets. Do what you can to live a life free of them!
