For example: you may set yourself a boundary of no work on weekends. You leave your work phone on and notice an alert advising of a work email. Do you ignore it or do you read the email ‘just in case’ its urgent. One decision supports the boundary – one does not.
It can mean some initial disharmony, discomfort and it could be easier to give in. There’s no guilt around this it is a choice. You can learn a lot about yourself with the areas you let yourself down. Its usually just a habit. But in the longer term if your boundary is important to you – you may want to hold the line.
I suggest you create a support crew to encourage and support you so you don’t backslide. Choose a friend or colleague who you can share your boundary with and talk to about the testing times so you can get back on course.
And remember it may take a month for the new boundary to become a new habit. So go easy, be persistent and keep your eyes on the end goal.
