Saying no is self-care

Life can indeed be quite hectic. Finding ways to be consistent can be really difficult. Especially when we keep adding to our already full plates!


Saying no is self-care is important because life can indeed be quite hectic. Finding ways to be consistent can be really difficult. Especially when we keep adding to our already full plates!

Saying no to others is saying yes to YOU. Having a ripple effect on those you care for and on your success.


A full life is wonderful. I am grateful for mine but it’s also important that we slow down and smell the roses too!   One way to do that is by saying no to things so we don’t go into regret and resentment mode. 


achieving our goals undoubtedly requires dedication and effort, continually adding more tasks to our already overflowing plates can quickly lead to feelings of overwhelm and possible burnout.

When we find ourselves juggling numerous responsibilities and trying to keep up with never-ending to-do lists it’s essential to remember that it's perfectly okay (and encouraged!) to take a step back, take a deep breath, and reevaluate our priorities.


While achieving our goals undoubtedly requires dedication and effort, continually adding more tasks to our already overflowing plates can quickly lead to feelings of overwhelm and possible burnout.


These can manifest in various ways - from finding ourselves in a perpetual bad mood to feeling physically and emotionally drained, and even making decisions we might later regret.


It's crucial to strive for balance.


It's crucial to strive for balance.

By taking the time to prioritize what truly matters and setting boundaries when necessary, we can prevent burnout and ensure that our well-being remains intact. After all, when we're at our best, we're better equipped to handle life's challenges and support those around us.


Good to avoid the negative consequences that come when we neglect our own needs and avoiding the downward spiral where our well-being ends up at the bottom of our list of priorities. This neglect can have far-reaching consequences, impacting not only our mental and physical health but also our relationships and productivity. However, by making self-care a priority, we can break free from this cycle and cultivate a sense of balance and fulfillment.


Inviting activities and practices that bring peace, joy, purpose , worthiness into our lives, enables us to better support others and have a positive impact too.


We feel less stressed and more aligned,  helping our nervous system regulate which is awesome self-care in itself ;) 


What action steps can you take to protect your time + energy AND avoid R + R (resentment + regret)

Here are some of my suggestions:

  • What can you take out of your calendar?

  • Where can you add some you time in?

  • Delegate delegate delegate!
