What Are Boundaries?

First things first: What are boundaries, anyway? You can think of boundaries as an "invisible line" that enforces which behaviors and actions are important are acceptable for you.

How to Strengthen Boundaries

While positive thoughts and affirmations around boundary-setting are incredibly helpful, they don't always feel like the whole picture—sometimes, strengthening your boundaries requires a little extra work. 

First, it's important to get clear on what your boundaries are. Do you need an hour to yourself every day after work? Is sleep a non-negotiable? Is there a family member who is taking up too much of your time and needs some limits put in place?

Once you've done that, feel free to call in whatever reinforcements you need to make sure you stay true to your boundaries. Talk to a therapist, practice regular meditation, pour your energy into wellness, take time away from Instagram and Facebook, and do whatever you need to do to nurture your inner child and protect your mental health. Before you know it, you'll see how clearly strong boundaries are benefiting your life.
