Boundaries help you stay emotionally and mentally healthy. Healthy boundaries are an essential step in self-care. Boundaries improve your well-being. Healthy boundaries can improve relationships.
By saying no to too many projects, taking on too many responsibilities or doing something that isn’t in your best interest or that you just don’t have time to fit into your already busy schedule.
By saying No to something is saying Yes to something that is important to you. When you say no to doing something you don’t enjoy or just don’t want to do, you are giving yourself time and freedom to focus on your personal needs.
It is in your best interest to focus on the things and people who are important to you.
