Tell someone “no”
In a society where we pride ourselves on how busy we are, telling someone “no” can trigger more anxiety than making small talk at a networking event. So, we go to the pointless happy hours against our better judgement. Instead, give yourself a break, cancel plans, decline an invite, skip out on your weekly spin class, and relish in your found time. When you’ve been stretching yourself thin, telling someone you can’t make their event will be as much of a treat as ordering that bacon cheeseburger from your favorite restaurant -- without the cholesterol intake.
