7 ways to avoid making bad decisions in your life

7 ways to avoid making bad decisions in your life

Making bad decisions is a part of life. If you have not experienced the ups and downs in life, then you haven’t experienced life at all. Making mistakes does not make you a bad person, just a normal one. But after a certain point, there comes a time when making a wrong decision is a luxury one can’t afford. So, what can one do from an astrological point of view to set themselves on the right path? Let’s find out:

Indulge in Sadhana or meditation

Good decision making requires the utmost peace of mind and body. Performing sadhana or indulging in meditation is the best remedy. Truth be told, it is not an easy method and it needs to be learned step-by-step over a long period of time. It may be especially difficult and frustrating for those people who have a hard time sitting still for long periods of time and whose mind tends to wander easily. Hence, it is recommended that you start slow. Keep in mind that even a single session of meditation, where you relax and focus only on removing negativity from within you, releases endorphins or good hormones in your body and significantly changes brain chemistry, resulting in improved judgment and clarity of mind.

This is the way you can connect to your inner self, resolve internal conflicts, and choose the highest path to walk on.

Change your habits and behavior

Bad decisions are not always the result of a rash or compulsive actions. Sometimes they can be caused by old habits. Our old habits are a sign that foresees misfortune and unpleasant consequences in our future. They tell us the state of our planets, and they need to be changed immediately.

If you see one or more of the following habits or behaviors in you, start working on getting rid of them to ensure a more fruitful future.

You don’t sit with your father often, and when you do, you entangle in arguments

Clear your throat and spit excessively 

As a remedy for these habits, get up early in the morning and offer water to Surya (Sun God)

Sleeping and getting up very late

Being unable to see the morning sun 

This indicates that your Rahu and Shani are powerful, and not in a good way. Go through extra efforts to sleep early and wake up early to get your personal life in order. 

Nail biting

This means your moon and Ketu are quite bad and affects your decision making power. Offer food to animals and strengthen your relationship with the mother to improve on it.

Talking excessively

Aggressive debating 

These indicate your Jupiter is not good. This can lead to financial and business-related problems and need to be eliminated right away.

Excessive leg shaking is an indication of bad Saturn and Mercury, which refers to bad decisions and failure in achieving goals. 

Smoking and drinking can lead to chronic illnesses and financial troubles.

Gifting and doing donations

Karma is often confused with fate, when in reality it is the consequences of our past actions. If you have experienced bad luck in life, chances are that your past life’s karma is involved and you are suffering the outcomes in this life. But your past life is over, therefore one can only take action to improve their current one. Indulge in selfless deeds such as gifting and providing others with what they need, donating food, clothes, and other necessities to the poor and needy, feeding stray animals etc. Remember, good karma leads to a good life ahead.
