There's nothing like having a decision hanging over you to make you feel stressed. Learn to make efficient choices faster.

CREATE A STRATEGY for decision-making. Have tight deadlines for each stage. Pressure will speed up the process.

RELAX. Do something enjoyable that will distract you from your pending decision and put you in a positive, energetic mood.

MAINTAIN YOURSELF in decisive mode. Be clear about which daily decisions need time and which are minor choices.
