We all have important decisions to make, but if you have anxiety and you are stressed, then making those decisions can be difficult, oftentimes paralyzing you to take no action. And the more you worry about making the wrong decision and not coping with it, then the more anxiety you will have.
When you are stressed and anxious, you experience numerous physical symptoms that are directly caused by the stress and anxiety, such as irritability, poor sleep, muscular tension, fatigue, poor concentration, poor appetite, memory lapses, gastrointestinal upset, and tunnel vision, just to name a few.
When you have these symptoms, it is difficult to make an important decision that has significant consequences should you make a wrong decision. Also imagine if you have to make an important decision for someone in a vulnerable position and who depends on you, such as a child or an elderly parent.
When having to make an important decision, it is prudent that you make sure you are not stressed out, and to take time to decrease your stress and anxiety. You can start to decrease your stress by doing things that will relax you, such as diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, yoga, massage, or aerobic exercise. You can further decrease your stress by doing some self-care, such as sleeping more, eating better, grooming, and finding some support in helpful friends and family.
If despite these measures you are still stressed and anxious, then you may need to get more help, such as contained in Anxiety Protocol, or KalmPro.
