I’d like to begin this article with a caveat. I’m most definitely not a “no” person. I’m actually very much a “yes” person, but after years of overscheduling my days and constantly being disappointed by not completing my unrealistic to-do lists, I decided to dedicate some time to overcoming my compulsive need to say “yes.” While I’m still a work in progress, I’ve learned some very helpful tactics for how to say “no” when the ask calls for it. If you’re like me—overly committed and wishing that there were more than 24 hours in the day—scroll through for some proven ways to say "no" without feeling utterly guilty.
