WIT Wellness: Set Yourself Free by Setting Boundaries

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020  12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET 

As a chronic high-achiever and people-pleaser, Julie got stuck in what she thought she should be doing. Trying to be the "best Mom", "best wife", "best employee", best co-worker, and the list goes on and on! Does this sound familiar? At one point however, it became very clear that this was no longer sustainable, and it all came to a screeching halt. As a burnout survivor, Julie has learned that setting boundaries is a life saver. It not only helps you, but it truly does help everyone around you. Setting and reinforcing boundaries is not easy and it takes constant practice – but starting the process will change your life. As we go into the holidays and then into the new year, there is no better time to start thinking about this! 

Join Julie on this WIT Wellness Webinar and learn:
  • How to think of boundaries as a way of helping yourself AND others
  • Simple ways to start setting and reinforcing boundaries
  • Tips on how to protect your energy and how this relates to setting boundaries
