Tips on Setting and Maintaining Boundaries

Lori Hutson joins Suzanne to talk about honoring thyself, living your core values, as well as not overcommitting, not giving up yourself for someone else, being intentional with our lives, setting & respecting boundaries, and knowing when to say no. These are an aspect of both spiritual and intellectual wellness, two of the 8 foundational principles of wellness featured this month as part of the Vitality Revolution podcast series sponsored by Humana.

Lori says, “This could be at work too, but in our personal relationships, if we’re not setting those boundaries and honoring ourselves, we start building up hidden resentments. And I think a lot of women especially, and this could be men too, but we start building up these resentments towards the other person, they don’t even realize what it’s about. And then all of a sudden you’re having a fight over, you know, the toothpaste tube or something, because you’ve got all these hidden resentments that you haven’t laid out there your boundaries. And then all of a sudden you’ve got all these issues in your relationships. It’s really healthy for relationships to set those boundaries.”

Lori provides a list of tips, some of which are to know your values, be assertive, starting small, practice self-care, communicate directly, respecting your limits.
