Al­ready feel­ing over­whelm ed?

Essentials (South Africa) - - SMART IDEAS -

It’s harder to make good choices when you’re al­ready stressed out, but keep these tips in mind.

✱ Ac­cept that you can’t have it all, no mat­ter how much you wish you could.

✱ Trust your in­tu­ition and be­lieve that you’ll ul­ti­mately make the right choice.

Set your­self a de­ci­sion dead­line, so you can take time to think without let­ting your­self con­tem­plate for­ever.

✱ Prom­ise that if you do make the wrong de­ci­sion, you won’t hold a grudge against your­self.

✱ Imag­ine you’re a fly on the wall – pre­tend you’re mak­ing the de­ci­sion for some­body else, not your­self, and it might be eas­ier.

✱ Use your imag­i­na­tion to con­sider the chain re­ac­tion your de­ci­sion could have.
