Saying "No" Can Be Good For Your Health

Published on 6th August 2021

Most people like to be helpful and do things for others, but if you are always taking on extra tasks at work or at home then you could be damaging your health.

Feeling under pressure to do things you don’t really want to do increases your stress levels and when you are under prolonged stress you are more likely to get ill.

So how do learn to you say “no”?  It is best to balance kindness and courtesy without sacrificing your own sense of self-worth.  Be your own advocate – it is important to your wellbeing to sometimes say “no”.

If you recognise yourself as saying "yes" too often and would like help in being more assertive, then brief therapy can help. It can give you the skills to achieve and how to go about it.
