This video actually comes from the hypnobirthing online course that we took but it is a life hack for everybody, not just parents-to-be :).
In short, the lesson is: whenever you are presented with a difficult decision, use your BRAIN. That means asking the following questions:
Benefits – what are the benefits?
Risks – what are the risks?
Alternatives – what are the alternatives (if any)?
Intuition – what does my intuition say?
Nothing – what happens if we do nothing?
Applying this routine brings insight, clarity and control, even in complex situations such as medical, judicial or technical emergencies where you might typically feel helpless in the hands of experts and their protocols.
