Are you someone who has a hard time saying no, even if saying yes means you will be inconvenienced or overwhelmed? Maybe it’s time to set some boundaries.

Why is it so difficult to say no? Has the strain of the past year made setting boundaries more challenging? Have limits become more important to your mental health?

MPR Host Angela Davis talks to therapist, relationship expert and author Nedra Glover Tawwab about her new book “Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself.”  They talk with listeners about why it’s so difficult to say no, how the past year has made it both easier and harder to set limits and why setting boundaries with others is so important to maintaining mental health.
