When we say “yes” to everything, it’s easy to lose sight of what we need and deserve. It can also leave us depleted because we simply are not able to do it all. Setting boundaries with other people and learning how to say “no” frees up space to focus on the tasks that are most important and most aligned to our skill set, and ultimately avoid exhaustion and burnout.
Burnout is defined as exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration. Burnout happens when we’re overwhelmed and exhausted. We have said yes to everything and taken on too much.
