Decision Fatigue refers to the deteriorating quality of decisions YOU make after a long day of decision making.
It’s caused by being forced to make so very many decisions over the course of your day.
And you likely know what I mean?
You wake up deciding whether you’re going to read, exercise or eat (and what), then head immediately into bathing, then what clothes to wear, then what time to leave, then whether you stop along the way, then which way to turn and on, and on, and on…
By the end of the day, you likely can’t even decide where to eat or what to eat for dinner and you get frustrated or angry just having to make that decision.
(What do you want to eat honey…oh, I don’t care…whatever you want!!!)
So then, the question lies deeply in…what to do to stop all the madness?
Here are 5 ways to overcome Decision Fatigue and boost YOUR will power:
1. Plan your daily decisions before you go to bed (things that get scheduled get done!).
2. Get really clear on your first thing first in the morning (then do it consistently).
3. Establish good habits that help you maintain your morning success and do them the same EVERY day (read, exercise, eat or whatever order works best for you).
4. Simplify (you don’t really need all those clothes and shoes in your closet anyway. They’re a luxury not a necessity!).
5. Pause 5 minutes at lunch or take a short break around lunch time to do #1 again for the afternoon (things have changed, so put out all those little fires and get back to accomplishing all the big hairy important stuff!).
There you go…I hope it helps you a bit?
I’m a little fatigued just trying to decide what to write in this one!
