The Book of Boundaries
  • The Book of Boundaries

  • A empowering and compassionate guide to setting boundaries to revolutionise your relationships, and end resentment, burnout and anxiety, from the New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole30.

    Do your relationships often feel one-sided or unbalanced? Are you always giving in just so things will go smoothly? Do you wish you could learn to say no - but, well, nicely? Are you depleted, overwhelmed and tired of putting everyone else's needs ahead of your own?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to establish some boundaries. Since launching the mega-bestselling wellness programme the Whole30, Melissa Urban has taught millions of people how to establish healthy habits and successfully navigate pushback and peer pressure. She knows first-hand that boundaries - clear limits you establish to protect your energy, time and health - are all that stand between you and feelings of security, confidence and freedom.

    Now, in The Book of Boundaries, she shows you how boundaries are the key to better mental health, increased energy, improved productivity and more fulfilling relationships. In her famously direct and compassionate style, Urban offers:

    - 130+ scripts with language you can use to instantly establish boundaries with bosses and co-workers, romantic partners, parents, in-laws, co-parents, friends, family, neighbours, strangers - and yourself
    - Actionable advice to help you communicate your needs with clarity and compassion
    - Tips for successfully navigating boundary guilt, pushback, pressure and oversteps
    - Techniques to create healthy habits around food, drink, technology and more

    User-friendly and approachable, The Book of Boundaries will give you the tools you need to stop justifying, minimising and apologising, leading you to more rewarding relationships and a life that feels bigger, healthier, happier and freer.
