My Journey with Work Boundaries

Let's talk about boundaries. I've heard and seen the topic of setting work boundaries come up a lot in the past few years. It's funny to think about when I entered the workforce, how the thought of "setting boundaries" was almost unheard of. Was it because fewer people were glued to their phones and taking work home with them? Was it because we know better now? Maybe it is a combination of these factors. What I do know is that somewhere in between getting married, going through a pandemic and having a child, setting work boundaries became not just something to strive for, but a necessity. I brought up a real example of my coworker's work boundary (see the email signature below) on Instagram recently, and it sparked A LOT of comments from you all. So, today I am sharing those and more about my journey with work boundaries.
