🌍 I recently had the pleasure of reading  from an insightful book called "Belonging Beyond Borders" written by Megan Norton, which inspired me to share some important takeaways. In this book, Megan explores the topic of setting healthy boundaries, specifically for digital and global nomads, as well as those who love to travel. 📚

Here are 3 key takeaways from "Belonging Beyond Borders":

1️⃣ Boundaries bring structure, stability, and safety:
Research has shown that setting boundaries provides a sense of security, which leads to greater creativity and freedom. Boundaries are an essential form of self-care, self-compassion, and self-respect, helping you define what you need to feel open and safe.

2️⃣ Learn to recognize and manage social threats:
Megan highlights the importance of assessing social threats to your physical and psychological safety. By understanding whether you feel safe being yourself, maintaining autonomy, experiencing predictability and fairness, and being valued for your contributions, you can establish healthier boundaries in your relationships.

3️⃣ Reflect and set boundaries in all aspects of your life:
Belonging and setting boundaries go hand in hand. Megan prompts us to consider our relational, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual boundaries. This reflection includes evaluating the relationships that empower or deplete us, determining our physical and mental well-being needs, and nurturing our spiritual selves.

🌟 Setting healthy boundaries is an ongoing practice that requires rest, recovery, and resilience. 🌟

I highly recommend reading "Belonging Beyond Borders" by Megan Norton to gain valuable insights into boundary-setting, whether you're a nomad, a traveler, or simply seeking to establish healthier boundaries in your life. Remember, each of us has a unique recipe for finding belonging and creating boundaries that function for us.
