    The Discomfort of Setting (and Enforcing) Personal Boundaries

    The Discomfort of Setting (and Enforcing) Personal Boundaries

    Setting personal boundaries is hard enough  - as in, learning how to say No, when in the past you've always said Yes, or being brave enough to disagree when you all along you've always agreed with people to 'keep the peace'. 

    Enforcing personal boundaries is even more challenging. The key is to get comfortable feeling uncomfortable - especially when you can sense people aren't pleased with your decision. Often times, when we're afflicted with the 'disease to please', we'll give in and go back on what we said we'd do just to avoid conflict. 

    Join me in this week's episode of Essentially Women where I discuss the particular discomfort of setting and enforcing personal boundaries.

    Love Notes to Ourselves - Day Five

    What to do when there's too much to do and not enough time to do it

    Continuing the daily Love Notes to Ourselves and on Day 5 I talk about how we can often get so caught up in being busy we forget to check in with ourselves to see how we're feeling.

    Every day this week on Instagram I'll be reading a passage from my book 100 Daily Affirmations for Women live - please pop over to @dawnquestcoach and either listen in live or watch the recording and do like, share and comment if you feel inspired, motivated, agree or disagree... I'd love to hear from you.

    Have a lovely day,
