Do you feel like you’ve got too much on your plate? Do you take on too much? Do you say ‘Yes’ when you should say ‘No’?

You might say ‘Yes’ to an invitation to an event or a request to get involved or an obligation we feel we can’t ignore.

We don’t have to say ‘Yes’ to every invitation, every request or every obligation every time. Sometimes we need to say ‘No thank you!’

Give it a go!

You can say 'No' to doing something that you normally have to do - or feel like you have to do! Say no to the chores that look like they have to get done but could actually wait. Worth a try!
