Are you good at saying Yes? Yes or No?

You get to decide what’s right for you.  Learning to say No can mean a YES to what’s most important. Learn to discern what is important and stay open and flexible.

Let your feelings guide you.  Ask Yourself:

  • Am I over extended? Doing too much?
  • Do I need some time alone? With friends?
  • Do I need some fresh air, some fun, a nap?
  • Do I need some support? Exercise?
  • How is my sugar, alcohol, caffeine intake?

Awareness is the first step to change. Knowing yourself makes Yes and No easy.

When you notice you are rushing around in a frenzy – no worries. Just stop, shake it off, and choose a calmer state of mind. Become aware of How you are moving through your day.

If you usually say yes without thinking about it, pre-think right now if that’s working for you. What would you prefer?

Try this if you can’t say NO:

  1. Slow down
  2. Say: I need to check my calendar and get back to you.
  3. Review what’s right for you when you have a moment to contemplate.
  4. Then make a decision.

Simplify your life. Your inner Yes or No will guide you.
