Article: The life-changing magic of knowing whether people are ‘Askers’ or ‘Guessers’

If you are suffering from the overload work and responsibilities, then you need to take care of yourself and set some boundaries and start to say No.

This is basically the advice you are given if you complain about your mental, emotional and even physical health, while you are running around to please everyone around you and neglecting yourself.

Take care of yourself… But how? Especially if you are a woman with a family and business to take care of.

So setting up boundaries and saying No, is the most repeated advice for taking care of yourself. From my point of view, I found it hard to say No. But it never came to my mind what this attached article highlights. It stresses the difference between askers and Guessers. It basically advices that we should distinguish between the asker (who is asking but does not expect a yes answer), and a Guesser (who expects a YES answer).

Does this makes it easier to say NO? Well it does help me out though.

This article caught my attention since it highlights the results of a research study. The study explored if certain smells would affect our battle with losing weight, off course beside diet and exercise. The study found that certain smells such as garlic and onions would work its magic and sends messages to the brain that we are full. No wonder when I cook I don’t eat much…

The study is promising but there is a need for more expanded research on such topics.
