Communication with teammates helps a lot. When you retreive the puck with little to no pressure, if there's a teammate nearby he should yell "TIME" at you. If they aren't doing that, ask them to start. When you know you have time to pick up the puck, take a look and make a smart decision, you won't rush to get rid of it so quickly, which almost always leads to turnovers.
If there's someone on your ass, your teammates should be telling you about that too by yelling "one on" or something like that.
Once you get used to slowing things down using verbal cues, you'll pick up on when you have time and when you don't.
