Decision Fatigue

I’m so excited to share this Facebook live replay from last Thursday! I talked about decision fatigue, how it holds you back, and what you can do about it.

What is Decision Fatigue?

It’s just what it sounds like- making little decisions all day every day that end up exhausting you. It’s one of the reasons you’re so exhausted at the end of the work day, or the reason you and your friends don’t want to be the one to pick the place for dinner.

How does it hold me back?

Wouldn’t you like to use that mental energy for something else? As a business owner, I know that I am beat at the end of a day where I’ve had to make so many decisions. At the end of the day, which is an important time for me because it’s my time with my fiancé, I’m exhausted. I don’t make choices that match up with my values or my goals for my health and relationships.

When you’re conscious about limiting the decisions you make, you have mental energy for the whole day. You can focus on what’s important, even if it’s at the very end of the day.

What you can do about it

Make the decision once. If you decide ahead of time that you’re going to workout every morning, you don’t have to go through the whole “should I or shouldn’t I” routine. Sure, there are other obstacles. But you’ve gotten rid of a huge roadblock by making the decision to go in advance.

Stop trying to be perfect. You’re adding a bunch of decisions to your to do list, and you’re not going to reach perfection anyway! When it’s good enough, stop.
