AUGUST 2018 - SAYING YES TO SAYING NO
The beginning of the new school year is a perfect time to get better at saying “no” to extras that don’t align with what is most important to you. This is an opportunity to reflect on what you’ve been doing and decide what it is time to stop doing and let go of.
Remember that there is a seductive optimism to the new school year that can tempt us into volunteering for things. We return to school feeling rested and energized, but remember that a “no” to a request for your time and energy is a “yes” to family time, health, and whatever else fills your bucket and sustains your balance.
