The art of saying no

Say NO

Do you find yourself saying yes to all sorts of requests, only to regret it afterwards? Here are a few questions that help you say no.

Learning to say no will give you more control and freedom over who you want to assist and it will reduce your daily stress. So, start to practice today. The more you practice the easier it will get to say no in the situations you said yes out of habit.

Ask yourself these questions before you respond to a request:

Do I have the time?
What do I have to give up to do this?
Will I feel pressured?
Will I be upset with myself or resent the person asking?
Will I feel duped or manipulated?

These questions are from Sue Newman’s book “The Book of NO”
