Take control of your relationships with this all-in-one guide to identifying, setting, and—most of all—maintaining healthy boundaries with your family, coworkers, friends, partner, and self.
Well-designed boundaries are an essential component of living a happy, healthy, and balanced life. But while you may know that boundaries are important, it can often be confusing and intimidating to understand where, when, how, and with whom to build and maintain boundaries.
To help, Dr. Shainna Ali, mental health counselor, educator, and best-selling author of The Self-Love Workbook offers Designing Healthy Boundaries, a comprehensive guide to incorporating self-love into building your boundaries. How you perceive, value, and respect yourself all influence the effectiveness of your boundaries. This approach will help you set limits that are more deeply aligned with your personal values, yourself, and your relationships.
Through interactive activities, reflection prompts, and case examples, this workbook will help you explore what boundaries look like in your life and create more meaningful, rewarding connections through the art of boundaries.
