How to Set Healthy Boundaries

Ready or not, tis the season of gratitude and giving. As your calendar fills up, are you giving too much of yourself?

It might be time to build some healthy boundaries.

Setting boundaries isn't selfish; it's crucial for your mental health. Through the hustle and bustle of the season that kicks off with Thanksgiving, be sure to take time for yourself. Set the world aside and go for a walk, get a massage, meditate, read a book, or cozy up with hot cocoa on a Saturday night. Whatever brings you peace on earth, DO IT.

Balancing nursing school, work, family, and managing a social life is a monumental task. Boundaries prevent overdoing, over-committing, and oversharing. These things lead to exhaustion. But how do you say no to the invitations and expectations from others? How do you set those boundaries that no one can step over? Take it one step at a time.
