Every morning we wake up with a bucket of willpower, and every single decision we make results in a willpower monkey jumping out. In a position that makes tough decisions all day, we can get decision fatigue that results in status quo- or fear-based decisions.
How can we keep more monkeys in the bucket and decrease fatigue? Insert energy breaks into your day, make your high-stake decisions in the morning when your serotonin and dopamine levels are high, get enough sleep, go outside for fresh air, stay hydrated, and eat a breakfast high in protein and healthy fats.
