10. Not paying attention to heart health
For some reason, heart disease and heart attacks are only associated with men. While it's true that oestrogen protects women's heart for a majority of their lives, post menopause, women are as susceptible to heart disease as men. But the notion that heart disease doesn't touch women is so strong that very often women even ignore symptoms of a heart attack. Ignoring heart health is a big mistake and women as well as men should take all the necessary measures to ensure a healthy heart.
