How to Go on a Decision Diet for More Mental Energy & Willpower

Today we’re diving into the research on willpower + decision making, and I’m sharing 7 strategies for making fewer decisions, combating mental depletion, and having more mental energy and willpower.

We have a finite store of mental energy for exerting self-control, so we need to find ways to manage this energy.

A Decision Diet is a way to manage mental energy so you have more self-control and willpower when it comes to things that matter.

The magic formula: More decisions = mental depletion = less willpower and self-control.

What to do about it: Conserve mental energy by reducing the decision load.
