Many pragmatic entities will stress that you listen to your head. At most times, this is true. Listening to our heads always enables us to make rational and fact-based decisions. However, there are times in people’s life when they have to do the irrational for their lives to have meaning. At times like these listen to your heart. It might sound cheesy, but it is true. There are times when doing the most rational of things gives us a hollow feeling in the pit of our stomachs, possibly because of the instances where you have to take the offensive and let tomorrow worry for itself.
Next thing you should do is to understand how your body reacts to certain situations. When you are afraid, which part of you ails? When you are happy, do you have a certain feeling?

Even if you are taking the most rational, intellectually assessed path, your body gives signals of discomfort and hesitation. Do not disregard these bodily signals. Of course, the signals comprise our gut feelings. Since our senses are prone to human natural, many times our intuitions are right. It takes time to be in proper alignment with your intuition, but when it happens, you can never go wrong. Practice your intuition and trust it because in time, it will prove to be a valuable shield and weapon in life.
