Decision-making can be difficult, especially after stress or traumatic events, like the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re all been through a tumultuous past few months. The threat from the virus continues and the need for caution is ongoing.
While public health advice guides us, there are still decisions each of us must make particular to our own personal circumstance.
When to return to the office? Should I visit the city from my remote or regional area? Do I want to attend a party, funeral or wedding? How to care for my elderly parents? Should I catch a bus?
These types of choices involve levels of decision making about what is safe for ourselves, our family, friends and communities.
