Well in Mind Self-care Tip of the Week
Setting clear-cut boundaries and communicating them shows respect for yourself as well as others. If it helps, write down what’s most important and make sure your friends and family know what you’ve decided is your priority. This will help them better understand what you’ve chosen to spend your time on and why.
It might not be easy at first, but give it some practice and see how it feels. Sometimes, a simple no will suffice. Other times, you can ease out of committing yourself to an obligation by saying, “Let me think about it; I’ll get back to you.” Or your response can be more detailed: “Thank you for thinking of me, but I’ve decided to focus my time on something else.”
