In this episode, my good friend, Whole30 co-founder and CEO, NYT-bestselling author Melissa Urban joins us to talk all about her new book and why setting boundaries is the new movement for mental and physical health. We dive into what boundaries are, why they are important, and how you can start setting healthy boundaries in all areas of your life - in relationships, at work, food, alcohol and even on social media. Plus, exactly what to do if they aren't respected by others.

Melissa Urban is the co-founder and CEO of Whole30 and an authority on helping people create lifelong healthy habits. She is a six-time New York Times bestselling author (including the #1 bestseller, The Whole30), and her  highly anticipated next book, The Book of Boundaries, will be released on October 11, 2022. She has been featured by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, Forbes, Good Morning America, and CNBC; is the host of the Do the Thing podcast; and is a prominent keynote speaker on boundaries, building community, health trends, and entrepreneurship. She lives in Salt Lake City, UT.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • What are boundaries and why are they important?
  • How to set boundaries in different situations (i.e., work, friends, family, social media, and yourself).
  • Energy leakage - what it is, and how to prevent it.
