Nedra Glover Tawwab knows a thing or two about boundaries. Over the holiday season feel free to pull a couple ideas from her list on how to respect your boundaries when spending time with family.

-Laying out your boundaries ahead of time can prevent issues on the day of 

-You don’t need to be the hero and do everything on your own; ask for help in the kitchen 

-People will be themselves. Consider this before extending an invite or accepting one 

-If the conversation goes off course, don’t match the energy in the room 

-Know when to leave the gathering, develop an exit strategy
