Preventing Stress make a decision

Make Decisions - here are two techniques:

 A. Can't make up your mind? Maybe your subconscious can help you.
  1. Before going to bed, think about your problem and the various choices you could make. Think about each choice clearly in your mind. Tell yourself you're going to make the decision while you sleep.
  2. You may not name the solution the next morning but if you keep trying, you will eventually awaken with your mind made up.
B.Sit down with a pencil and paper and make some lists.
  1. List your options.
  2. List the consequences of each option.
  3. Write your response(s) to this question: What will happen if I don't choose at all? If you don't make a decision, that's a decision in itself and it also has consequences. Once you realize that something is going to happen whether you make a decision or not, you may find the decision easier to make.
C.  Avoid Procrastination
  1. If procrastination causes stress in your life, learn to stop putting things off. People don't do their best work under pressure. However, some people convince themselves that if they do so they can avoid dealing with their habit of procrastination.
  2. Make a weekly schedule and fill it with lots of time for leisure as well as work. That way, you'll enjoy your playtime because you'll be doing it at the right time, not when you should be working. And when you are working, you won't resent it because you'll know that your leisure time is coming up soon.
D.  Delegate

  1. People who haven't learned to delegate often feel needlessly stressed. Some are poor delegators because of too little or too much ego.
  2. Delegating isn't a matter of dictating to others; it's asking others to assist you by doing tasks they can handle. This gives you more time to do those tasks that perhaps only you can do.
