So learn to execute your work in a more organized fashion so that you get some ‘Me Time’ for yourself.
3. You tend to encode numerous information at one go
Your stomach looks like an inflated balloon and makes you feel uncomfortable when you indulge in overeating. Similarly, your brain fails to store too much information gathered at once.
Your mind also needs some rest like your body. Try to memorize 3-4 pieces of information at a time. Let it get stored into your memory before you encode any further.
4. You make hasty decisions
Making a choice or decision comes in varied forms. Once in a while, you need to make decisions without giving a second thought.
It is not that all the decisions taken in haste turn out to be less productive. It is often fun if the decisions taken are on your side.
5. You do not welcome new things when upset
When you go through a lot of stress or emotional and mental instability and during this period if a new thing suddenly pops up in your life you do not welcome it with positive vibes.
For example, you feel reluctant to work if your team members get shuffled and a new manager makes an entry. You tend to avoid meetings with your new manager because you unconsciously fear encountering upcoming challenges in your job.
6. You overthink trivial matters
You spend sleepless nights overthinking, if you face disappointments in relationships, work-life or feel cheated and hurt due to an unwanted event or arguments with a close one.
Overthinking is often beneficial to make a difficult choice but at the same time, it affects your mental health to an extent.
So learn to ‘let bygones be bygones. Try to live the present and focus on the future to make it better rather than brooding over past events and thoughts.
7. You compare a lot with others on social media
Social media is a platform to connect with the entire world. It helps you to reconnect with your distant friends and family and make new ones.
People keep posting about their life events and stories on social media platforms. It is inspiring and you stay connected with their lives but deep inside your soul, you tend to compare your lifestyle with others.
It is the eccentric qualities in each person where the difference lies. So comparing your life with other people is not the best idea. Work hard to make your life a carefree and happy one.
8. You often conform to a group
You often tend to conform to others knowing they are not right only to avoid criticism. You try to pacify others and wait to seek approval from others to make a move. This happens mostly when you are not confident enough over the matter.
It results out of anxiety or due to lack of knowledge over the subject matter you are in. You can overcome this by identifying your skills and trusting your potentialities.
