The Price of Saying Yes
I have a tough time saying no. If someone asks me to do something, I just add it to my long list of things to get done. Today, I need to feed the kids breakfast, drop them off at school, walk the dog, return to school to help stitch moccasins, go to the gym, write a proposal, approve a budget, take my son to the dentist, help with homework, cook dinner and go to a party. Sounds like a lot. But no worries, I pride myself on being hyper-efficient and getting it all done. I am constantly running around with no apparent end or destination. It is no wonder I often feel overwhelmed and resentful. I am not alone. We are collecti...

Did you know, for example, that people living in places that get more of the sun’s UV radiation have the lowest incidence of cancer?1 That doesn’t mean sunlight lowers the “risk” of getting cancer. Getting more sunlight keeps people from actually getting cancer. Studies show sunlight prevents skin cancer, prostate2 cancer,...
