At times, fear might prevent you from making a tough decision. In these situations, it's important to figure out exactly what you're afraid of and face your anxieties directly, according to psychologist Larina Kase. "We reduce anxiety by challenging negative thoughts," she said. It might be tempting to do as much research as possible before making a decision, but choices are often better when you trust your instincts, Kase said.
