Creating healthy boundaries is a fundamental part of self-care. To establish these boundaries, start by clearly identifying your limits in personal and professional realms, and communicate these to others firmly and respectfully. Prioritize your time by learning to say no to requests that overextend your energy or infringe upon your values. Incorporate self-care routines by scheduling regular intervals for activities that rejuvenate your spirit, such as exercise, meditation, or hobbies. Additionally, ensure you have quiet time for reflection and rest, which is essential for mental health. By doing so, you create a balanced life that aligns with your physical, emotional, and psychological needs. -SG
