This year, in the spirit of practicing kindness and finding joy, we invite you to think about how understanding the importance of setting and maintaining healthy boundaries is a gift of self-compassion that may be long overdue.

This article explores how embracing the concept of creating boundaries to address social commitments and family dynamics can help you better manage people-pleasing pressure. You can reclaim your peace and maintain routines over the holidays. Realizing this can be incredibly liberating.
