Family life is the cornerstone of our happiness and fulfillment. As women, we care for and nurture our families. We value our family and want to create a harmonious and healthy home environment for our loved ones. We play different roles – mother, wife, sister, daughter and professional- balancing these roles can be overwhelming. We have very little “me” time for ourselves as we’re often conflicted about how to or should incorporate self-care into our busy schedules. As a result, we feel drained, exhausted and overwhelmed.
You may worry that saying no or establishing boundaries will disappoint your family, so you overcommit to appease them. You may be concerned that they see you as selfish for wanting to have time. Setting boundaries benefits not only you but also other family members.
