Are you tired of being in the decision parade?
Every day we make decisions about:
What clothes to wear; should we walk or bike to work or school; do we stop to get coffee and once there do we want coffee, latte, cappuccino, one shot, two shots, decaf or regular; what meetings do we attend; which project do we work on; which applicants do we hire; which emails do we respond to; which Facebook posts do we read; and should we Tweet?
Take a breath. And then. . .
After work do we exercise and what does that look like? A walk, Yoga, do we use a home gym, do we join a gym, do we Bow Flex, Crossfit or go straight to Insanity?
And then it is time for dinner, but wait! Are we Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw, Atkins, Paleo, South Beach, or should we be in the Zone?
After all that we just want to relax and watch T.V., but how do we decide between the 800+ channels, thousands of movies, and hundreds of shows available at the push of a button.
Take another breath. And then...
If that doesn't give us decision fatigue, step back and look at the big picture of life decisions:
What school to attend; what degree to get; what career path to take; who to date; should we get married or stay single; should we have kids and how many; should we buy a house- which house or should we rent; what car to drive; what friends to associate with; which charity to support; which sport to like and which team to cheer for; how much money to save; and where should we retire?
No wonder we live with our mind swirling so fast that we need small computers that fit in our hand to keep all of these decisions organized.
And yes, we have to decide which one of those smartphone computers will work the best for us!
What if we just stopped!
Don't make one decision.
Close your eyes.
Your body will breathe on its own- no decision necessary.
Be at peace for five minutes or an hour.
You may just decide to make this part of your day.
Give yourself permission to disengage from the decision parade.

“Allow yourself to disengage from the decisions of life
and breathe in the presence of being here now. ”
