Holiday 17 - Tip 9 - Practice Saying No

TIP 9 - Practice saying no.

In order to summon the will power to say no in the most tempting situations (whether it be excessive dietary indulgences, skipping workouts, or other lifestyle “slip-ups”) it’s important to start practicing on easier issues.

Will power is like a muscle, so the more you “flex” that muscle by saying no, the more prepared you’ll be to turn down that extra serving of grandmas baked goods when everyone else is going back for seconds and thirds.

During this holiday season remember one one thing. You shouldn’t feel bad for saying no to your loved ones, because it means you’re saying yes to yourself, and potentially increasing the health of your friends and family members.
