We will be discussing the power of no.
The word no does not have to have a negative connotation. That one word can bring health, abundance and happiness.
“No” is a moment of clear choice. It tells something affirmative about you. That the choice given is not your priority, that it is not good for you, or that you are saying yes to something else.
While we interact with others, love and respect others, and value our relationships - we do not and cannot allow ourselves to always be influenced by them. This is not a sign of disrespect - but rather self empowerment.
No is a tool/barrier to establish and maintain the perimeter of oneself. It says “this is who I am, what I value, what I will and will not do”.
We need to learn to be comfortable with the word no to make health a choice. We need to say no to choices that negatively impact our health without guilt.
We need to say no to overscheduling and things that cause undue stress as this affects our health.
We need to learn to say no to things that don’t align with our goals, and take away from our overall goals and health.
