One of the biggest struggles both my students and I face is creating and upholding boundaries.
When we have no boundaries in place for our time, other people, and ourselves, life becomes a free for all.
Things don’t get done. Life feels out of control. We build up resentment.
There are a few reasons that people fail to establish and uphold boundaries:
- Guilt/feelings of selfishness
- They don’t know how
- They don’t value themselves enough
- They don’t know how to say no
The list could go on, but these are some of the most common ones that I see.
But if you want to live your best life, boundaries are a critical component.
I suggest boundaries around:
- Your schedule
- Other people
- Your work vs home life
Because the truth is that no one has a TIME problem. They have TIME MANAGEMENT and BOUNDARIES problems.
So, in what area of your life or with whom do you need to set and uphold stronger boundaries?
Identifying these areas is the first step followed by creating a scheduling plan and potentially having some difficult conversations with people in your life.
But if you truly want to take ownership to create the body and the life you want, these are things you must do!
