End the struggle, speak up for what you need, and experience the freedom of being truly yourself.
Mental health issues such as anxiety can be prompted by our neurological response to stress. When we are stressed, our brain has difficulty shutting down. Our sleep is affected. Dread sets in. As a therapist, I observe poor self-care, feelings of being overwhelmed, resentment, avoidance, and other mental health issues as common presentations of boundary issues.
Healthy boundaries – we all know we should have them in order to achieve work/life balance. Further cope with toxic people, and enjoy rewarding relationships with partners, friends, and family. But what do “healthy boundaries” really mean and how can we successfully express our needs, say “no,” and be assertive without offending others?
Nedra Glover Tawwab is a licensed counselor, sought-after relationship expert. Also one of the most influential therapists on Instagram, demystifies this complex topic for today’s world.
In a relatable and inclusive tone, book presents simple-yet-powerful ways to establish healthy boundaries in all aspects of life. It is rooted in the latest research and best practices used in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). These techniques help us identify and express our needs clearly and without apology and unravel a root problem behind codependency, power struggles, anxiety, depression, burnout, and more.
