The Art Of Healing Thyself By Erecting Healthy Boundaries

Erecting healthy boundaries is like building a wall around you. The wall will not permit harmful habits or people in, and it will protect your priorities from being affected. Let’s examine how healthy boundaries can help you on your journey as you embark on healing thyself.

Boundaries help you determine what you are in control of. It marks your lines of what you are responsible for. The boundary lines that you establish for your health will empower you to know when to say “yes” or “no” with a great amount of confidence. These lines also give you a sense of ownership for your health and well-being. An example of this might be to know your limit on unhealthy food consumption.

The ability to clearly determine what your “yes” should be and what your “no” should be, gives you both independence and responsibility. When you have clear boundary lines you don’t need to waiver when making decisions regarding your health. You are responsible for what you can control.

Some examples of healthy boundaries you might establish for yourself for heart health are:

  1. Establishing heart healthy diet with the assistance of Dr. Corrielus.
  2. Building exercise into your day.
  3. Saying “No” to smoking and other harmful habits that jeopardize the health of your heart.
  4. Surrounding yourself with people who encourage you.

As you begin to establish healthy boundaries, be sure to enlist the help of Dr. Corrielus at Corrielus Cardiology. Together, we can help you as you discover the beauty of the “Art of Healing Thyself".
