How to Set Strong and Clear Boundaries

We all need to set and follow through with strong boundaries.

Although prioritizing these boundaries and your mental health might feel like you're ignoring those in your social circle...

 ...saying no to another Zoom hangout, turning off notifications earlier in the evening - you'll actually be able to better invest in the time you DO spend together by setting boundaries and taking care of yourself.

And if people don't understand that you need time and space so that you can heal and grow, maybe it's time to let them go.

In the age of work/school/social from home, BOUNDARIES are especially important to keep us and those we love healthy and sane!⠀

Here's why setting healthy boundaries is so essential:

- Setting healthy boundaries is part of self-care and self-respect.

- You avoid future conflicts and resentment.

- You set reasonable consequences for violating your boundaries.⠀

- You begin to have improved self-confidence and a healthy self-concept.

What are some of the most helpful boundaries you've set with yourself, work, your social life, or anything in between?

We've put together a list of ways that you could try to set strong and clear boundaries.

  1. Examine the boundaries that already exist (or are lacking) in your life.
  2. Use your personal values as a guide.
  3. Start small.
  4. Understand that different relationships require different boundaries.
  5. Enjoy some self-reflection.
  6. Realize that it takes practice and patience
