3 Reasons to Say No to More Work

By Genevieve Cunningham

Too many people don't understand the value of the word no. When we're asked to volunteer at a local club or in a church or in the community, we say yes out of guilt and obligation. When we're asked to take on another project at work, we say yes out of fear. But maybe it's time to stop living behind the yesses. Maybe saying no is more beneficial than we realize. Maybe it's even necessary. If you're ready to gain some of your time back and finally start using the word no, take a look at these reasons why you should do it and refuse to back down.

You’re Stressed

Don't be afraid to admit it. You're stressed and you know it. We're all stressed. We're doing too much, buying too much, and not doing enough for ourselves. We're overextended. If this is you, take your stress seriously. Stress can ruin health and quality of life. Why do we keep adding on responsibilities? Just say no to the next obligation. Don't explain or apologize. Just say no. This may help lower stress, free up some time, and give you a little confidence that you know what's best for your health and life after all.

You’re Fatigued

Feeling tired? Of course you are! We're all incredibly fatigued, and yet, we keep pushing forward. While this isn't all bad because we do, in fact, have to keep moving forward, it's OK to slow down and get some rest. And part of getting rest is saying no! Say no for yourself and your health and your sanity, and don't feel bad about needing the break.

You Don’t Have To

Sometimes the only reason you need is that you don't want to do something and you don't have to. You know what's best for you. You know what you can handle and what you can't. If you don't want to do something, say no. No can be a complete sentence. While this might leave you feeling guilty at first, the feeling will pass and you'll be left with better physical and mental health in its place.

It seems as though we've been conditioned to believe that saying no to more work is bad. That it puts us behind our colleagues. That it means we don't care about our work. But it is time to stop that train of thought. Saying no to more work simply means that you care about yourself. If you're feeling the need to say no, do it. It might take some getting used to, but it will be worth it to see your health and quality of life improve with your ability to take control of your life and say no.
