Do You Have A Hard Time Saying "no"?

effe4ea09ccd10ba77e9e5b3de0d39a9-huge-bwWelcome to day 4 of the Better Work-Life Balance challenge. 

Embrace the word "no". We don't hear it often, but it’s OK to turn down requests to cover a coworker’s shift, work overtime, or come in early. It’s nice to help out colleagues, but don’t do it at your own expense or feel guilty if you can’t. 

Do you have a hard time saying no? Let us know why or why or not in our discussion or in our Facebook group

Find this helpful? Use the social share links on this page to share it with a nurse you know and invite them to join the Better Work-Life Balance challenge.

Missed day 3? Catch up here. Take a sneak peak at day 5.

You never want to leave peers in lurch, but sometimes you have to prioritize and take care of your patient's needs and nicely say you are not available right now.
