Sometimes when needing to make big decisions in our life, it can be difficult to do. Research by reputable organisations has provided several options to help you with making that important choice or path in life.
The old advice of sleeping overnight on it is a very good option. Research has shown that when asleep our brains have time to process all the various inputs and put them into context for you, plus it may also provide other options or ideas which you may not have thought of while awake and feeling under pressure to make that important decision.
Taking a long walk has also been shown to be very beneficial for giving your brain time to process all the information, including your emotions, about what you are trying to decide.
Also, just having a break from the decision making area and possibly have a refreshing drink and a snack, will once again give you time to contemplate the options for the decision to be made.
The essence of the research indicates that you need to provide your brain with time away from other distractions, including the pressure of the situation, to let your brain time to process all the information. Remember that the bigger the decision, also the longer time frame of the result of the decision, and the less you are familiar with the subject to be decided, the more time you should give yourself time to develop the decision.
Once the decision has been made, be happy with the decision.
