MHAM Revisit: Creating Boundaries to Support YouMay 17, 2021
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are revisiting some of our favorite Playbook Blogs that focus on prioritizing ourselves and our own needs.
Last week we highlighted: The Power of Asking for Help
Next up: Creating Boundaries to Support You
"So how can we create better boundaries? In this world of instant gratification and instant response, it’s important to protect your time. Look at your routine and typical day and think about what time you want to make sacred “you” time. Then plan around it. No matter what your responsibilities at work and at home, you can still find some amount of time to take care of yourself.
As we get busier and busier in 2021, it’s important to carve out the important time we need to refresh, refocus and take care of ourselves. We need boundaries to grow and maintain our mental health. So the next time you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed, look at your boundaries. Are you sticking to them? What’s changed in your schedule that you should work on adjusting? Boundaries are a good thing - create the ones that will best support you!"
