One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is how to say no. Although this sounds (and might come) easy to some, many of us struggle with it. This means that we often find ourselves agreeing to things that we shouldn't or don't want to do. You will face situations like these often in your life, whether that be in your private or professional life. And the sooner you learn to say no, the sooner you will be able to focus on things that you actually want to have time for.

Cooking is an art. I have always struggled with it and it's been even harder since being diagnosed with IBS which has forced me to cook from scratch more. Thankfully, my flatmate is an amazing cook so she has taught me a few tips and tricks. With the current quarantine, many of us are forced to cook at home more because most restaurants are closed.
