First day of December. How did we get here??? this year has gone by crazy fast. And you know what? These next couple of weeks will go even faster. With all the holiday parties and celebrations to be enjoyed, it can be tricky to say no and stick to your schedules.
Boundaries are perhaps never more important than they are during the holidays. People - with good intentions - want to see more of you! They want you to have your kids stay up late, you to fit in one more get together, enjoy one more dessert - the list goes on.
I have personally found that for my own mental and physical health I have to say no to things I really would like to do. But prioritizing myself has had to come first, or I’ll totally burnout, and I know first hand nothing goes well once I burn out.
So to keep yourself from burning out over the most “wonderful time of the year,’be sure to:
-Set clean, concise boundaries, and then
-Stick with them, consistently.
Before you know it, no one will even question your boundaries. Rather, they will simply consider them the way things are, and will respect you for sticking to them.
Give yourself the gift of confidence and ultra comfort.
