Say no cards. A simple idea.

Thanks to Katie Brown for sharing this simple, effective little idea from Instagram.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pool together a group of friends that struggle to say no
  • Create small ‘Say no’ cards for each of them
  • Every time that person says no to something they would have previously said yes to, they punch the card or mark it on the card
  • For every ten ‘no’s’ – you buy your friend an ice cream / glass of wine / whatever you decide your little treat is.

Saying no is powerful. This is a really good way to rewire yourself.

Here’s a link to the Instagram video.
