Decide Using Two Systems
Did you know that two body systems are at work when you are trying to evaluate information and make an important decision, especially if youmust do it in a very short time? There's the conscious "think about it" strategy, and there's the subconscious "my body feels different" strategy in which messages go to your sweat glands or stomach. Many people pay attention to only one system, however. Use both systems together whenever you need to make an important decision. Think consciously and pay attention to any subconscious changes you sense in your body. In my life, my better decisions result when I pay attention to information from both my brain and body--and when they are on the same page.
