3. Don’t add extra stress to your life.
• If something is going to cause you stress, you have to say ‘No’. You owe it to yourself – to your emotional and physical wellbeing.
4. Don’t feel guilty about saying ‘No’.
• Need I say this? We should never feel guilty about following our own values. If you are invited to participate in an event at your child’s school or at work, all you need say is ‘I’m sorry, I have other commitments that day, but thanks for asking. Maybe another time.
