Decision Fatigue...YES it's a real thing!!!
Updated: Feb 1, 2021
Did you know that we have a set amount of will power and decision making capabilities each day? Think about it as a fuel tank which starts full each morning, then, each decision we make throughout the day slowly depletes the tank, and at the end of a long day our tank is empty, with all of our will-power and decision making skills rendered obsolete. That's why, after particularly stressful or taxing days, it's easy to make poor choices near the end of the day - like skipping the gym, eating fast food, or vegging out on the couch.
To combat this, if you have health, fitness or life goals which require will-power and decisiveness, plan your week and schedule your days in advance - schedule gym-time, prep your meals, write out grocery lists, plan outfits, calls with friends, etc. - the goal is to minimize your "on-the-spot" decision making needs so that you can reserve your will-power to tackle those amazing, brilliant and BIG goals that we know you all have.
And if health or fitness is one of those goals, and you want some help along the way, click to book a consult with me and I can help you get a plan in place!
