Lessen Stress with Critical Thinking


Lessen Stress with Critical Thinking. Critical thinking makes it easier to make the best decisions and choices. It’s knowing all the available facts, weighing them up. It’s not linked to being a critic, in the sense of judging how badly Amber Heard’s Lawyers are doing! (They still might win on a wing and a prayer or technicality). Critical thinking is about look at all angles and ignoring our sometimes-blatant biases. Team Johnny.

    3. Find multiple solutions! Write them all down and make notes.

    How can you get to this endgame?

    The Pros and Cons of each idea.


    4. Data farm. To find a solution, gather up as much information as you can even opposing opinions and Ideas. Information that will support your solutions and information that doesn’t support them

    5. Analyse. Take what you have gathered in the first 3 steps.

    •  Your problem
    • A list of solutions
    • The info you need to support or oppose each solution.

    Don’t assume anything, take everything into consideration and take your time. Have the evidence to back everything up. This will get easier and easier the more you practice it.
