Say YES to saying NO

On this post they talk about the importance of taking care of ourselves. They say that we need to make sure we are ok before helping others out. They encourage people to use no as a hole sentence at lest once this month. An here are some guidelines:

  • Say no to burning yourself out (at school, work, et cetera) to get someone else’s approval.
  • Say no to other people’s judgments about who you are.
  • Say no to negative self-talk.
  • Say no to your inner voice if it criticizes you for negative self-talk and forgive yourself.
  • Say no to a habit that is no longer serving you.
  • Say no to fear, and literally tell your fear who’s boss and who is in control (you).
  • Say no to something that feels like an obligation (unless it’s homework or a promise you’ve already made) and choose inspiration instead.
  • Say no to _______. (Choose your own no!)
One word I didn't understand was vapid. That means dull or tedious. They use this word when they are talking about media and how it might be stifling the fact that they talk so much about balance and the pressure to have it all, be it all and do it all. I think this message is really important. Specially for young people.
