Learning To Say No
There is no magic wand when it comes to living your best booze-free life. However, one of the most powerful tools you can learn to harness…is the art of saying NO.
Get comfortable saying no to things that you don’t want to do, to people that don’t make you feel good about yourself, to situations that you find triggering, to situations where you want to say because that’s what everyone else is doing
Learn to love saying NO. Here are five things to start saying no to on your booze-free journey…
1. Having a drink when you don't feel like it
If someone offers you a drink and you don’t want it, say no! It’s your choice as to whether or not you drink, nobody else’s.
2. People that don't make you feel good about yourself
Learn to set boundaries with the people who don’t lift you up and make you feel good.
3. Invitations for events that you don't want to go to
Life is too short to go to parties and events that you don’t even want to go to!
4. Situations that you find triggering
If a situation is triggering you, remove yourself from it as much as possible.
5. Staying out later than you really want to
Getting tired on a night out? Don’t force yourself to stay out to please others. Respect your tiredness, and say no to staying out for the sake of it.
