Life is Confusing

When life becomes overwhelming, follow these key steps. Perhaps your UX research has finally pushed you to the brink of sanity - not to worry - that's a normal part of the design process. Follow these key steps:

Part 1: Exercise

Exercise reduces anxiety and stimulates your brain to create memories. Exercise will increase your ability to focus and keep your mind on the task at hand. Do any exercise you enjoy that gets your heart rate up and causes you to sweat. Just 30 minutes of exercise can improve your ability to solve problems.


Part 2: Practice self affirmations. 

A brief self-affirmation exercise reduces stress and improves your ability to solve your problems. Write down the values (e.g. family and friends, business, money, independence, creativity, music, politics, religious values, humor, kindness, etc.) that are most important to you. Then write about why the value(s) you chose are important and a specific time they were important. This exercise gives you the opportunity to broaden your perspective and realize what is really important to you. A broadened perspective will help you feel less overwhelmed by your confusing thoughts and may help you identify a way to make a decision.
