Can't Decide? Paralyzed By a Choice? Indecisive? Try This Easy Trick! by Sonia Satra
Many people – myself included – don’t do so well with decisions. Even small ones, like what tea to drink, can trip me up. Don’t even ask about the big ones. I’m not going to say this is always easy, but this trick I’m about to show you – it works. Say you’ve got two choices. Let’s call them Rooibos Spice and Moroccan Mint, just to stick with the tea theme. And let’s say you just have no clue which one you want.
- First, visualize going with option 1: Rooibos Spice. What does that feel like? What does it look like? Picture yourself after the decision is made. Take note of how your body feels. That’s important. Step into that potential future as if it's reality. Let go of option 2. For now, let yourself fully soak in your decision. No holding back. Now, come back to the present.
- Next, visualize option 2: Moroccan Mint. What will it look like, feel like, be like, if you pick Moroccan Mint? How does your body feel? What’s happening around you?
Come back to the present. Which visualization felt better?
If you’re thinking, “I’m not good at visualizing, I’m not into that stuff,” that’s OK. Anyone can do this. The more you practice it, the better you'll get.
