The word boundaries floods our feeds these days and for good reason. Setting boundaries is an important, effective way to care for your mental health and wellbeing. We have seen some of the greatest stressors and causes of burnout result from inconsistent or underdeveloped boundaries by patients. In fact, a lack of boundaries in your job creates one of the leading causes of workplace burnout, as so many of us strive to stay on call for our jobs on nights and weekends – long after we logged off our computers.
Mind and Body works to help you draw more clear lines between what you want and need, versus what you don’t. It establishes where your responsibility begins and ends, where various relationships can and cannot go, and where your influence starts and stops. Healthy boundaries lead to improved mental and emotional health, improved self-confidence and overcoming personal or workplace burnout.
In our world of one-click purchases, live streaming, constant texts and all-consuming social media, finding a slower, more achievable pace is not only important, it’s necessary for long term health.
