Each week, I will include a few handy tasks and resources. All are optional, of course, but, highly recommended if you want to get the most out of the course. And no, you do not need to do every single journaling prompt.

How to Write Letters to Your Younger Self

ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT DRAINED LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE

So, we’ve established that boundaries are there to help you out and if you pay attention to warning signs that you are overloaded and basically that something or someone is sapping your energy, you can assert your boundaries, even if it’s ‘just’ with you, so that you get grounded in self-care. Next time you feel a sudden slump in your energies after someone has upset and/or drained you, make a note of what you’re feeling, where it’s showing up in your body, how it actually felt to be around this person and how it affected your mindset, attitude and behaviour. What you’re experiencing is your body’s way of letting you know that you need to refuel and have better boundaries around this person and/or in similar types of situation. You no longer have to leak energy or leak as much as you have previously because you can be mindful in these situations going forward.

PROTECT YOUR EMPATHETIC ENERGIES

Another handy trick I learned from my acupuncturist, Silvio, and after using it many times, I know that it works because it’s a mindset shift that causes you to be mindful of your energies rather than diving in and waiting until you’re knee-deep in problems. Before you enter into situations where there’s going to be lots of people or you suspect that you might get drained out, say to yourself, “I’d like to put a protective cloak of light around the edges of my energy. I’m sending back all of the energy that doesn’t belong to me and I’m calling back the energy that is mine” and then visualise yourself being surrounded in a bubble of light. Might sound woo-woo but it’s all about setting you up to succeed and protecting your energies so that you have them for the things, people, projects and opportunities that matter most to you.

CATCH THE INNER CRITICISM

A sure-fire sign that someone has crossed your boundaries and/or that you’re crossing your boundaries, is when your inner critic is on a rampage and giving you a hard time. Remember that your inner critic will criticise no matter what you do but if it’s loud, it’s because you’re being pushed to take assertive action and basically stand up for yourself (to yourself and potentially others, even if that quite simply means showing up). Next time the inner critic is busy, note what you were or are doing, who was around and what you did or didn’t do. Did you break a commitment to you? Did you put someone else ahead of you and end up sidelined? Yeah, your inner critic is rude but what it is letting you know is that you need to boss up. And yeah, of course it might moan about your boundaries but pay attention because the ferocity of the moaning or language may be very different to say, when you are busting your boundaries.
