Say “yes” to no – You can say no more than you’d think!

This is a New Year’s resolution all of us ladies need to try. We should start the new year singing a new tune – one that involves using the word “no.” It is easier than you’d think to say no more often than you already are.

According to naturopathic doctor Sara Celik (also a spokesperson for Renew Life), women often feel depleted and suffer burnout because they have a hard time saying “no” to others.

“They give, give, give without refilling their gas tanks,” she says. (Raise your hand if you’re guilty of saying yes when you mean to say no. Our hands are up, too!) “Women need to start honouring their needs and themselves,” she says.

How do you get in the habit to say no more often?

It is pretty simple actually. Baby steps.

“Say no once a week to something that you would’ve said ‘yes’ to,” she says. “It starts a healthy process of setting healthy boundaries.”

4 guilt-free things you can say yes to. Every. Single. Time.
