4 Easy Steps To Stop Overthinking Your Decisions
- Get To Know Yourself
If you know yourself inside and out then the likeliness of overthinking only has power if you allow it to.
Make it a habit to spend some alone time with yourself – read a book, visit a park, write in your journal.
Your goal in life isn’t to please everyone, it’s to be at peace with yourself.
So make it a priority to be happy and in tune with yourself so that you in turn can be confident in your decision making process, no matter the topic.
- Look At The Big Picture
Ground yourself in the now and ask ‘will this matter to me in three years or three weeks?’
Use whatever time frame works for your comfort zone but don’t stray from the goal – which is putting your decision on a scale of major and minor.
Obviously major decisions need your full attention, but the minor ones can wait until the need arises to solve them.
- Realize You Control Nothing…
…Except your own thoughts, words, and actions.
Worrying about the future is futile, you can’t possibly know how things will unfold.
By knowing yourself and concentrating your energy in the present moment, you’ll find yourself being more at ease with decisions and scenarios that come your way.
- Exercise Your Intuition
If your own intuition isn’t something you tend to listen to or use very often, get in the habit of becoming aware of its power.
Any and all answers can be found within yourself.
You already know what you want, what you need, and what you’d like to obtain.
Your objective is to listen and trust in yourself and your intuition more so that overthinking your decisions becomes a thing of the past.
