Decision-Making 101

Decision-Making 101


You make more decisions in a day than you think! Decision-making is an essential part of our daily life and has the power to shape our future. 

But when faced with so many choices, decision-making can start to feel stressful or time-consuming.

Once we understand the reason we make certain decisions, it can help us better understand our choices. Especially when faced with difficult decisions. 

Our Surroundings Can Influence Decisions

Our environment and biology can affect our decision-making process. For example, making decisions under high-stress levels can lead to impulsive decision-making. 

Though such situations are unavoidable, being in control of some of the factors that lead to them can help improve decision-making. 

Activities such as prioritizing sleep, exercise, and healthy eating can help us move forward in the right direction.

Plenty of Our Actions Can be Unintentional

Did you know that a handful of our daily actions tend to be automatic?

Habits take time to form, and they also take time to break.

A handful of our daily habits can impact our overall decision-making skills, whether we realize it or not. 

For example, if you’ve developed a habit of staying up too late, the lack of sleep can negatively impact your decision-making skills without even realizing it.
