One of the biggest challenges of focusing on yourself is dealing with distractions. Whether it’s social media, email, or other people, distractions can make staying focused on your goals challenging. To limit your exposure to distractions, consider setting boundaries. For example, you might set aside specific times of the day to check your email or social media, or you might turn off your phone during certain hours to give yourself some uninterrupted time to focus on yourself.

  • Practice self-care

Remembering that it’s okay to prioritize yourself and your goals and that sometimes saying no is necessary to achieve what you want is essential.

  • Stay positive.

Finally, it’s essential to stay positive and keep a growth mindset. Remember that personal growth is a journey, and setbacks and challenges are natural. Instead of getting discouraged when things don’t go as planned, use these experiences as opportunities to learn and grow. Focus on your progress and the steps you can take to continue moving forward.

In conclusion, focusing on yourself is essential to growing and achieving your goals.

Setting Boundaries

When you examine how your life is working day-to-day. It’s essential to think about what is adding stress to your life. Could it be fixed by merely setting boundaries?

It’s okay to set boundaries in relationships, with children little or grown. When we set expectations for what is acceptable in our lives and what is not, it’s incredible how much easier life becomes.

Work can also be a place where clear boundaries need to be set.

This change, however, most likely won’t come without some resistance. Here is a checklist to help with that conversation:

  • Set clear and easy to understand boundaries. If you need to write them out, do so. Just make sure that whoever is on the receiving end understands clearly.
  • Over a reason why you need this boundary. Explain the stress that it brings.
  • Don’t get upset if it takes a bit of time for the behavior to change.
  • Let the person know you’re not mad, it’s just bringing undue stress into your life.

With just a little conversation, we can set the stage for acceptable behavior.

If you struggle setting boundaries for family, friends, or coworkers. Take time to write out your thoughts on how this relationship could be a two-way street. Don’t just jump in without some real thought.

Sleep on your results reread them. If satisfied, sit down with the person and have a friendly chat. Set expectations and lay them out.

You don’t have to live at someone’s Becken call 24/7/365. Figure what you need to not have stress, put it out there and then hold that person or person’s accountable. It’s not unreasonable by any standard.
