Boundaries 2

It is very important to know your limits and what serves you well. How much of your time and energy can you give at this stage in your life?  Is there a happy medium that can benefit all, without neglecting your own needs?  Perhaps you need to pull back and commit to self-care.  Making time for recovery and rejuvenation is a vital part of healthy balanced living.

Assert yourself and your needs.  Set boundaries for wellness by expressing your needs clearly. You might choose to say “I’ve been feeling very tiredly lately.  I need to spend time practicing self-care.”  In addition, you might want to add more specific details such as, “I can still be available Mondays and Thursdays.”  Be ready to negotiate a win-win outcome.
