10 From GEM:
The Benefits Of Saying No

Do you ever say no? When you consistently say yes to everyone, do know that you are going to take something away from yourself?

Saying no is difficult because we don’t want to disappoint or let other people down. But by saying no to requests you don’t feel comfortable with or don’t want to fulfill will mean more freedom for you. Now, for example, you’ll be able to enjoy that leisurely Saturday morning without interruption, or because of saying no to that birthday party, you’ll be able to enjoy a carefree, relaxing weekend.

Save yourself some valuable time with these ten tips. Remember, your time is precious.

Silence those notifications at the very least and at best turn everything off.
