Moms often seek to please others, whether out of obligation or perceived politeness. The focus of this survey is to understand why and how we set, defend or relax our personal boundaries. 

Question Title

* 1. Boundaries that affect our physical well being are decisions that affect our bodies:
* what goes into your body (i.e what you eat or drink)
* what goes onto your body (i.e. what you wear, whether you want to hug someone you don't know)
* what affects your sleep (i.e. staying late at a work event out of obligation even though you're tired, etc.) 

When are you more likely to 'renegotiate' or ignore boundaries you've set for your physical health? Check all that apply.

Question Title

  Always Often Occasionally Rarely Never
Changes to what you eat/drink - i.e. have one more piece of cake, are you really a vegetarian?
Changes to your look - i.e. you should always/never wear that color, your hair looks better long
Social touching to be polite -i.e. hugging/kissing people you don't know, handshakes at events, etc.
