Scientific research shows that each person has a different biological rhythm. Usually, we belong to one of two groups as “early birds” or “night owls”.
Say no to others
Rejecting a proposal we find unconvincing or we simply don’t like can upset others, and can even make us feel guilty. However, saying “No” is not something negative or scary at all. It even boosts self-confidence and helps increase self-esteem.
Change in life
When deciding to change our lives or change our habits, we often get questions like “Why do we do this?” “Why do we do this?” “Is it okay to do this?”… However, the problem The problem is not on your side, but on the reviewer’s side – who have a need to prove themselves and lack self-esteem.

Take time for yourself
Taking a few days off work, skipping gatherings and spending time with yourself… is perfectly healthy and reasonable. Studies say that taking time for ourselves helps us see inward, better understand ourselves so we can do what we want to change.
