The Book of Boundaries: Set the Limits That Will Set You Free
November 21, 2022
Set the limits that will set you free. An instant New York Times bestseller, this book is a straightforward and compassionate guide to setting the boundaries that will revolutionize your relationships—from the beloved co-founder of the Whole30.
How often do you tell yourself to just “let it go” when you want to do anything but? Do you say “it’s fine” when, really, it’s not at all fine? When people do things that hurt you, do you speak up--or do you worry that saying anything will just make everyone uncomfortable? Do you feel resentful, depleted, or overwhelmed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to establish some boundaries.
Melissa Urban knows firsthand that boundaries—a few carefully selected words, spoken with kindness and from a place of self-care—are all that stand between you and feelings of ease and freedom.
Since launching the mega-bestselling wellness program the Whole30, Urban has taught millions of people how to establish healthy habits and how to deal with pushback and peer pressure. Now, in The Book of Boundaries, she shows how establishing boundaries is the key to better mental health and self-confidence, improved productivity, greater energy, and more fulfilling relationships.
