how to implement boundaries - it's easier than you think
Let's talk about a few ways to implement some quick and easy
boundary wins in each of the three areas we've defined.
Think of what you truly value in your life as
far as possessions go, what brings you joy and sparks a smile or a fond memory.
Keep those things close, let the rest go.
Affirmation:what I possess brings me joy and
energy and I release anything else.
Define your personal space, is it 2 feet around
you? More or less? Find one physical thing that you are in control of today and
do that thing 5 times. It might be as
simple as breathing or blinking your eyes. Success!
Affirmation: I am in charge of my body and the
physical space that surrounds me. No one gets in unless I give them permission.
Be in charge of your thoughts: take 5 minutes
today to think something positive about yourself.
Affirmation:I am healthy today, I am full of
energy and light.
Be kind to yourself when you are feeling
emotional. Some emotions are easier to
contain than others, you might find it easier to share your happiness than your
sadness. Find a balance and the right words to express them both in a way that
is kind to yourself and the person you are expressing your emotions to. This
will help preserve yourself and your relationships.
Affirmation:I am in charge of my emotions, they
are not in charge of me.
These boundaries can also be
applied to your work relationships, whether you have a full-time job working
for someone else, or working for yourself.
