The Power of No

The Power to Say NoHow many times have you said “yes” when you wanted to say “no?” Wanting to make others happy is natural. But, declining an invitation is OK, too. In fact, it can be downright liberating.

Whether it’s your time, talents or attention, sometimes it feels like everyone around you wants or needs something. It can be overwhelming. No one wants to disappoint a good friend or family member. However, it’s equally important to have some guilt-free time to unwind.

How Saying “No” Helps

Who knew two little letters could:

  • Boost your energy level. Overcommitting can be emotionally and physically exhausting.
  • Give you more time. Saying “no” lets you spend more time on what really matters to you, whether it’s a hobby, an area of self-improvement or your personal relationships. It also helps you prioritize what’s important in your life.
  • Make you more focused. When your attention isn’t pulled in several directions, you can focus on your current responsibilities, which are guaranteed to benefit from your renewed dedication.
  • Reduce your stress. When you do something only because you feel obligated, your stress level is likely to be sky high.
