From the moment you wake up, every choice you have to make or thought you need to weigh out consumes your brain calories. So at the end of the day or in periods of change, it’s no wonder your mind feels like mush.
Studies call this decision fatigue.
The trouble with decision fatigue is that it ends up causing more stress and undermining our better judgment. We disappoint ourselves and then feel guilty about it, which spurs the cycle all over again.
One simple way to relieve decision fatigue in your life is with meal planning. If you’ve ever stared into the fridge at 5pm, wondering what to throw together and call it dinner… I’ve got the perfect interview for you!
