Embrace Your Limits: How drawing boundaries creates more freedom and less stress, episode 3

Is our always on, always connected work culture taking a toll on our mental health? In this episode, Cathy explores… 

  • the role of the Pandemic and the conditions that are contributing to rising incidences of anxiety and depression;
  • how technology, instant communication and ever-accelerating work processes combine to create more and more stress;
  • how embracing our limits offers a way forward;
  • the role of boundaries and the three things people who are skilled at boundaries have in common;
  • and finally, the case for seeing our limitations as sources of creativity, value and freedom.

Here are some links to resources she references in the episode.
