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 is one of the main circumstances that lead to 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.
The mental health professionals at Mind and Body offer workplace burnout therapy that helps 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 job burnout.
In our world of one-click purchases, live streaming, constant texts and all-consuming social media, addressing workplace burnout and finding a slower, more achievable pace is not only important, it’s necessary for long term health.
Our human brains are not designed for the constant stimulation and endless access to each other at our fingertips. And while this fast pace is not changing anytime soon, Mind and Body will work with you to find a solution, strategies, and goals so you can thrive and overcome even the most challenging personal or workplace burnout.
