How to set boundaries

Let's be honest, taking care of yourself and prioritizing your health takes time, energy, and focus. This is especially true when you are working to change behaviors and habits.

A way to determine if you are being effective with your time is to assess how you are spending it. In other words, are your priorities in line with your actions?

Prioritizing requires you to compare things (no matter how uncomfortable) against each other and determine what matters more to you, and then to set boundaries around the things that matter less. Take notice that I didn't say the things that don't matter, because they may still matter, but they just matter less and won't give you the outcomes you are wanting when it comes to your health.
