[Star Tribune, June 8, 2019] When they think about taking care of themselves, many Americans seek online advice about how to sleep, or be distracted by music or a good book. But not Minnesota. A new study based on search engine activity found that Minnesota is one-of-a-kind in the self-care term it Googles most: setting boundaries.
More clients, especially women, are making appointments specifically to deal with boundary setting, said Karina DiLuzio, a coach with Allina’s Penny George Institute for Health and Healing. “I just see it so often in women,” she said, “and that is definitely part of the Minnesota culture — women who are overcommitted and really seeking to please and be all things to all people.”
