Let Go of That Indecisiveness and Get Confident with These Tips

Let Go of That Indecisiveness and Get Confident with These Tips

There may actually be a biological explanation behind indecisiveness. Two regions of the brain deal with making decisions, but that does not mean you don’t have to let go of the inability to make decisions. There are ways to do that, but it takes confidence and knowledge of how to change the habit.

Choice Overload

Choice overload is a thing that happens when people are presented with too many options. The effect has to do with looking at options in life that have more serious consequences. When it comes to choosing insurance options, it is important to come up with ways to choose from what is out there rather than get overloaded with so many options. Options offer power if they lead to people making decisions.

Brain Power

The brain actually lights up when a decision is being made. The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), where the brain weighs cost and benefits of decisions, and the striatum, the part of the brain responsible for determining value, both light up during decision-making processes. These decision-making regions get more active with choices because of the excitement of being able to choose one option over another.

Choose One Option

The challenge with making decisions has to do with too many options on the table all at the same time. If you want to avoid indecisiveness when faced with a decision, try to limit yourself to a reasonable number of options before you start doing the work that involves your brain. There are many ways to trick your brain into making a decision. You might want to consider some of the following to help the brain focus on making a quality decision:

  • Consider a short meditation
  • Take a walk
  • Take a quick power nap

The less the brain has to feel stressed in the process of making a decision, the better off the brain usually becomes.  It is hard enough to make decisions, but it helps to take the onus off the brain itself and focus on letting the brain rest for a time before jumping into making a decision.
