How to make good decisions when you feel stressed
Saturday, 13 June · 2 min read

Do you sometimes feel like all your thoughts are racing around your head in multiple directions and you can’t catch a single one?

This may be a sign of stress, which is common during times of uncertainty, but feeling this way is likely to impact many aspects of daily life - such as your ability to make decisions.

If you're feeling overwhelmed and you're struggling to make decisions -- big or small -- try some of the following tips to help you get clarity:

  1. Don't let pressure influence your decisions - instead, re-evaluate everything when you feel calmer before making that choice final.
  2. Run your options past someone whose opinion you trust - particularly in situations where you’re worried you might be making a poor choice, as they can offer insights or spot drawbacks.
  3. Devote 30 minutes each day to doing activities that help you de-stress, such as moderate exercise, breathing exercises, connecting with loved ones or just taking time out.
