If you have to make a decision or work through something that is bothering you, what do you find is the best way for you to do that? Do you tend to use the same strategy or does it depend on the situation?

If I have to make a decision sometimes I like to sit down quietly on my own and think the matter through. Perhaps I choose to sit on a bench in a park or on a chair outside at home and observe the garden while I mull things over. If the matter is complex I will pray about it.

With some decisions I find it helpful to write a list of the pros and cons. That doesn't work for other matters.

Sometimes I make decisions while travelling alone on the train. I gaze out the window but my mind will be on whatever I need to decide. The changing scenery tends to relax me which helps me sort things out.

If I am feeling overwhelmed I may lie down so I can relax while I am thinking. I may even take a short nap before trying to work things out. If a decision doesn't have to be made urgently I may just put decision making on the back burner and wait for the answer.

There are times I find it more effective to go for a walk along the river or in some other natural setting. When I lived a short drive from the beach I sometimes walked along the sand to do my thinking. Walking in a shopping area wouldn't work for me.

With some decisions I find it beneficial to sit down and talk it through with someone. This is particularly if I feel I need more information and the person I am talking to is knowledgeable on the topic. On occasions I have talked to a counsellor.

If I need more information I sometimes turn to sites I trust on the internet. However, I need to resist the temptation to keep looking for more and more information.Too much information and perhaps conflicting opinions confuses me. Also, I know I can use the idea of needing still more information as a tactic to avoid dealing with the matter.

Everyone has their own way of making decisions and sorting out life's challenges. The best advice is to do whatever works for you.
