Say "yes" to no

Best Health - - LOOKS -

Start the new year singing a new tune – one that in­volves us­ing the word “no” more of­ten. Ac­cord­ing to natur­o­pathic doc­tor Sara Ce­lik, women of­ten feel de­pleted and suf­fer burnout be­cause they have a hard time say­ing “no” to oth­ers. “They give, give, give with­out re­fill­ing their gas tanks,” she says. “Women need to start hon­our­ing their needs and them­selves,” she says. The best way to do that? “Say ‘no’ once a week to some­thing that you would’ve said ‘yes’ to,” she says. “It starts a healthy process of set­ting healthy bound­aries.” Other ways to live healthy? Take a page from pop­u­lar well­ness re­treats and fol­low a rou­tine of bal­anced liv­ing: Prac­tise yoga, med­i­tate, take na­ture walks, make a habit of eat­ing fresh, healthy food and try a cleanse.
