How to Create Healthy Boundaries and live authentically

Boundaries are ways to set up clear expectations and responsibilities, they help us define what is appropriate in relationships. I would like to share with you how to create boundaries and live authentically.

How to Create Boundaries and Live Authentically:

Here are 3 common boundaries

  1. Physical
  2. Emotional
  3. Time

Let’s put these into action and dive a little deeper into each one to clarify what exactly they mean…


This is anything that involves your physical body

  • physical needs
  • touch
  • personal space
  • “Don’t take things off of my desk without my permission.”
  • “I feel comfortable shaking your hand instead of giving you a hug.”
  • “I need to step away from my desk to eat my lunch.”


Being able to express and nurturing your feelings and emotions

  • what you share with others
  • expressing your feelings
  • speaking up if you do not want to talk about something
  • alone time
  • sense of self
  • energy level
  • Limiting your availability to someone who wants to just complain
  • “I need you to share bath time responsibilities with our kids so we both can enjoy free time.”
  • “I am not able to attend your party, thank you for thinking of me!”
  • “I do not want to talk about my weight/love life/etc.”


Boundaries with time are about understanding your priorities and not overcommitting.

  • “We will only be able to stay for an hour.”
  • “I am unable to volunteer for that event.”
  • “I will only respond to work emails during the hours of 8-5 pm.”
