“Think of sit­u­a­tions where you’ve gone into un­known ter­ri­tory and fig­ured it out,” ad­vises Me­lanie Green­berg, Ph.D., au­thor of The Stress-Proof Brain. Maybe you picked the ideal time to launch a side busi­ness or ne­go­ti­ated a great rate for a loan. “Our brains don’t like un­cer­tainty, and the alert sys­tem comes on to pro­tect us from loss,” she says. As a re­sult, you put enor­mous pres­sure on your­self to make a per­fect de­ci­sion. “Bring­ing mem­o­ries to mind where you fol­lowed your in­stincts and it worked out helps you see your­self as a per­son who can cope no mat­ter what.”
