Do you feel exhausted just from making decisions all day? You are not alone. Decision fatigue is a real thing. I know that after a busy day of working, taking care of kids and making decisions all day, the last thing I want to think about it is what’s for dinner. What if that wasn’t the case? What if you had so many decisions streamlined that by the end of the day, your mind was not on overload and you already knew what you were having for dinner?
Make a Plan
In order to get everything done in a day, we all know that it helps to be organized. What time are you going to exercise and for how long? Start with a small plan. As this routine becomes automated, then you can add more time or complexity. Exercising for a short time on a regular basis is better than exercising for a longer time, once per week.
Automate your daily and weekly routine. Wake up with your same morning routine each day. Eat lunch and dinner at the same time each day. Exercise at the same time each day in clothes that you have picked out ahead of time. Plan your meals for the week every Sunday.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t go out to dinner or eat lunch at a different time because of a meeting. However, if you can have a routine planned out that works on most days, then your digestion and your brain will thank you.
Start with streamlining one to-do item this week. Once you’ve got that on autopilot, then work on the next. Small steps for big results over time.
