Easy Ways to Say No
Do you find it difficult to say no to people? Perhaps it means you end up being busy, stressed, or over-committed? Often when we struggle to say no to people it can leave us feeling used, put upon, or juggling too many things. Are you the one who ends up working late because you’ve said yes to others, yet you’re the one with more to do?
Then this episode – Easy Ways to Say No – is for you.
I talk about:
- How to say no and establish healthy boundaries
- How to handle the fear, stress, worry and guilt
- The surprising reason that saying no is good for you
- Key phrases that you can begin to use to get you started
- Why it’s not always about you
- Suggestions to think about helping you with easy ways to say no
It’s important to be able to say no so you feel empowered while still maintaining your relationships with others. Saying no helps you establish healthy boundaries and enables others to have clarity about what they can expect from you.
When you struggle to say no, look at what’s going on when you feel like this? What feeling or emotion comes up for you when people ask you do something? Perhaps there are past experiences and situations that mean you’ve learned it’s easier to say yes than no.
For many it’s a worry or fear about what others will think.
Consider the other situation – you say yes so many times that you end up worn out. Then there’s really no chance of you saying yes to anything if you’ve made yourself poorly! Focus on the benefits of saying no.
Apparently the Mayo Clinic has done research that concludes that saying no can help to reduce your stress levels and increase your happiness.
