5 Steps To Overcome Compulsive Indecisiveness!

5 Steps To Overcome Compulsive Indecisiveness!

Do you find it too hard to figure out what to wear? Does taking some important decision leave you feeling paralyzed? These indicate that you suffer from compulsive indecisiveness. Struggling with this problem leaves you stuck in one place and causes you distress. Fear of taking the wrong decision is the primary reason, which makes people indecisive. It is also likely for you to bother too much about what other people think of you.

Here are five important steps, which you should take for overcoming compulsive indecisiveness:

  1. Forget your fear: Fear of something often causes indecisiveness. You need to figure out and write down your fears and what you would do if these occur. If you are indecisive about a job change or whether the new job will be paying you less, you should analyze how the reduced income will affect your life and how you can deal with it.
  2. Tune into your emotions: Maximum people who suffer from compulsive indecisiveness and struggle at making major decisions tend to over analyze situations a bit too much. In some cases, you cannot create an easy perception or a suitable side for a situation in spite of stressing over it from various angles. The situation will remain the same, no matter how much you think. Write down your options, think about them, rate them, and choose the top rated option.
  3. Practice on small things: For improving upon your indecisiveness, you should start practicing by taking small decisions every day. Aim at taking 10 major decisions everyday such as where to go for lunch, which route to take to work and more. Slowly, practice taking decisions quickly instead of pondering over a situation. Try to make instant decisions in various spheres of life.
  4. Learn to trust yourself: You need to list all your strengths. Write down whether you think if you are smart, creative or funny. Ask yourself whether you can infuse your strengths into your process of decision making. Try to test your strengths in all kinds of matters. Once you are sure of your strengths, you will be able to achieve your goals without hesitation.
  5. Pick one thing at a time: You should pick things and matters one at a time to focus on. If there are several things which bother you and add to your indecisiveness, try to handle them one by one. This way you will be able to give all your focus to one matter, and overcome your fears related to it. After that, move on to another fear.

It is important for you to let go and refrain yourself from analyzing whether a decision which you had taken is right or wrong. Instead, focus on activities which matter to you and do not ponder over old decisions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I am an engineering student. I have a lot of tensions in my mind like about my career and all. I do study but don't give my best during studies. I study calmly but my concentration level is so low. I have depressed due to all this things as I have been trying for many years but didn't get anything. What should I do develop my mind?

Dear, You are not alone. Almost all adolescent people do have such attitude. It is not your fault but your developmental mile stone. You are learning LIFE. Don't worry. You have concentration if you are able to watch movie for 2 hours continuously. In the matter of studies, you do not have attention because you are not interested in it. You are not interested because you do not have any concrete aim.

Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. Anxiety (intense nervousness) and self-consciousness arise from a fear of being closely watched, judged, and criticized by others. Symptoms include: Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Hello doctors I have been smoking for almost 7 years, and it's more like a mental need for me now. As it doesn't feel any different or uneasy if I don't smoke, but I have kind of scheduled myself with smoking. How could I overcome it? Also I was wondering if there could be any means or methods via which the effects I have on me can be reduced? Can tar be removed at regular intervals with some artificial process? What affect more, tar or nicotine? Thanking you in advance.

It is very easy to quit if your body is not demanding it, and as you say it is more of a mental need. Every time you think of lighting a cigarette, have a glass of water, take a light snack or have a fruit. Basicslly, the idea is to postpone smoking. Try visiting non smoking zones and create a mental boundary for not smoking at certain times, like diving, when with friends or after meals. Tar is a by product rather when nicotine is accumulated for a long time, that is tar. I haven't heard of a process of descaling your lungs.

I am over feared. When I become feared or anxious my foot and palms will become cold as ice. I likes loneliness. Sometimes I am afraid and sometimes brave of everything. I usually dreams. Maybe all the time, even in sleep. Day dreaming is too a problem. My body does a thing and my mind thinks about something else. One day I was reading something in public (a big article) I read it continuously but my mind was somewhere else. But I finally woke from day dream (without closing eyes. And found out I finished quater of the article.

Medicines are having side effects. In compulsory situation only we go for medicine. Up to that you are not go medicine it is good. There is a curability with psychotherapy, psychological counselling, cognitive behaviour modification therapy, relaxation therapy. Better to consult a good psychologist in hyderabad. Or please come to vijayawada I will help to you. Psychological counselling there is no side effects. It helps to modify your personality. It improves your life style management. It is always good to you. But the expert in psychology is needed very much. Do not be alone. Better to share your feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time. Be positive. Do not think too much about the depression. Today everyone is under depression. In this case no need of any medicine. So better to take the help of the good psychologist. Ok all the best.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Even drinking once every week can produce fatty liver. So get his liver function test done to know if alcohol is affecting his health. All the best.
