Boundaries. We all need them, but more often than not, we have a hard time building and maintaining them when we’re in and out of the hospital.
Whether it’s with your patients, clients, coworkers, or loved ones, it’s important to build healthy boundaries that protect your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. But how do you do that? Well, in case you missed it, Harbor.vet partnered with Dr. Marie Holowaychuk for a few 30-Day Challenges to practice well-being, and one of those challenges was focused on Building Boundaries. We’ve built out a workbook to help guide you through the entire practice, and wanted to share a few of our favorites to give you a sneak peak.
Building Healthy Boundaries
Setting healthy boundaries starts with getting clear on where our limits reside. Setting limits with work helps us preserve time for mental and physical health-promoting activities.
What are your limits when it comes to work?
Boundaries with ourselves are in the form of self-control and self-imposed limits. We are responsible for our choices and how we spend our time.
What areas of your life could benefit from more defined limits?
Healthy boundaries at work includes setting limits, saying no, asking for what you need, and maintaining your privacy. Boundaries also allow you to do work that aligns with your values and lifestyle.
