How many of us have found ourselves burning the candle at both ends, juggling between a full-time job and [at least] one side hustle. Saying “no” becomes a foreign concept, and you keep taking on more and more, knowing you’re fully capable of completing each of the tasks.
The problem? You start taking on so many tasks that your attention to detail starts to falter and you begin to forget little things (like what day of the week it is, or that you’re not wearing your glasses as you leave the house, hypothetically speaking…). If you’re anything like me, saying “no” is almost like accepting defeat. It can be so difficult, and can feel like failure. It’s time we realize that saying no, and taking time for ourselves and our mental well-being is totally acceptable. We are human-beings, and we need time to recharge our batteries.
