DEFINE YOUR NON-NEGOTIABLES
THEN GUARD AND PROTECT THEM
In our previous article, I asked you if your body could talk to you, what would it say? Many of you messaged me some of the things it was saying to you. A lot of my answers back to you had to do with creating boundaries for yourself to make sure it will STOP saying those things to you. 😉
Non-negotiables are the things you will not negotiate on. They are defined by your values and principles and they govern what you will and will not accept from other people, but most importantly, yourself. When determined, defined, set in place and protected, they can guide you towards wellbeing and not feeling completely totally overwhelmed and stressed out.
Here are some examples of non-negotiables, and they can be anything for you:
•Having family dinners minimum 3x per week
•Unplugging Sundays until 3pm as a day to not check and rejuvenate
•Powering down nightly at 8pm
•Moving your body 20 minutes daily
•Being asleep by a certain time during the week
•Having date night or a girls night at least once a month
•Not working on weekends
•Saving X amount of dollars each week
•Volunteering once a month
Catch my drift?
When you don’t compromise on your non-negotiables, ie, when you don’t break your promises to yourself, you will start to set yourself up for success instead of failure.
You’re looking at my non-negotiable in this photo. Movement outside in nature everyday. I need it. It is my non-negotiable and I therefore protect it and guard it with my life. Yesss.
