Listening to intuition is important to make decisions that are right for you. Sometimes we tune into it, and sometimes we don’t. All in all, we should pay attention to it. Especially when:
Your body says so: Physical reactions like goosebumps, a tight throat, or a lump in your stomach should never be ignored. You notice these effects for a reason.
Taking a risk: Even if it doesn’t pan out, you can learn from your mistakes.
Making a big decision: Instead of analyzing each detail, going with what feels right at the moment often leads to better choices.
Helping others: Experts say that compassion is a primal emotion. It allows us to pick up subtle signals of anxiety and fear in others. So if we see someone who might be in a dangerous situation, it’s better to jump in and help instead of holding back.
