Hi Greatist readers and Happy Monday!
I can’t believe we’re already this deep into January! It makes me think about how sacred time is and how we can do our best to make the use of our wants, needs, and desires with the time that we have.
This is why intention setting is so important. It helps us to lean deeper into the daily tasks we commit to. By being intentional we learn to create boundaries through the process so that we can take ownership of what’s ours, and delegate what’s not.
For this week, I’d love for you to think about how you can be more intentional with your boundaries. I’m talking about boundaries with others, but also boundaries with yourself.
Last week we touched on this very briefly, but this week I want you to think about the things and people who are getting in the way of your wellness. Ask yourself what boundaries you need to erect with them or with yourself?
- Trying to improve productivity? A boundary can look like limiting the time you spend on social media and watching television to use that time effectively for meeting your goals.
- Trying to decrease stress? A boundary can look like minimizing interactions with people who may be making you feel drained.
- Trying to eat a balanced diet? A boundary can look like being intentional with the foods you select at the grocery store and avoiding the ones that don’t serve your wellness needs.
I’ll be back next week to check in with you and dive into this topic even deeper. Stay tuned!
