When Times are Calm, Do You Still Set Boundaries?

When times are calm…

Whether times are calm or stressful, time boundaries help shape your energy and your time.

And yet, we are most likely to think about the need for boundaries when we are most stressed.

Stressful times…

Establishing and maintaining your time boundaries is a challenge anytime. And when you are under stress, it can be even more difficult.

However, during stressful times, time boundaries help you to maintain your energy and find the space to breathe and reflect. This, in turn, helps you be more efficient and effective as you manage whatever is on your plate.

What about times of calm?

Well, during times of calm, time boundaries are equally important.

In fact, it’s during these periods that the boundaries you establish, and the time choices you make, are proactively shaping your quality of life.

These are times when you have the opportunity to embody your values in your moments. And what you practice during times of calm will nourish and support you during times of stress.

You have a lot of power here.

Genuinely appreciating the full power of your time choices requires and builds grit.


You genuinely realize what power and responsibility you hold in your own two hands. And assuming that level of ownership creates courage and an expanded sense of possiblity.

Life becomes infinitely more exciting.

No more wasting energy in blaming others. Your moment-to-moment choices grow more meaningful. This, in turn, brings your focus back to the here and now. “Here” is where you live. “Now” is where all your power resides.
