Establishing and maintaining your time boundaries is a challenge anytime – and when you are under stress, it can be even more difficult. During stressful times, time boundaries are extremely useful. They help you to maintain your energy and find the space to breathe and reflect – and thereby be more efficient and effective as you manage whatever is on your plate.

And yet, during times of calm, time boundaries are equally important. It’s during these periods that the boundaries you establish, and the time choices you make, are proactively shaping your quality of life and helping you to embody your values in your moments.

Genuinely appreciating the full power of your time choices requires and builds grit. Why? You genuinely realize what an enormous responsibility you carry in your own two hands. Yet assuming that level of ownership actually creates courage, because life becomes infinitely more exciting! No more wasting energy in blaming others. Your moment-to-moment choices grow more meaningful. This brings your essential focus to here, now. “Here” is where you live. “Now” is where all your power resides.

Setting and maintaining time boundaries requires assertiveness and discipline. These are not magical qualities or character traits that we are born with. They are skills that get easier and easier, the more you practice and use them.

And the benefits are HUGE. While the implementation is incremental, the effects of using these time management tools are transformative! When you find your time boundaries and use them, you are finding yourself!
