Becoming overloaded with so many choices is a thing! Alvin Toffler's 1970 book, Future Shock talks about cognitive impairment. Cognitive impairment makes it challenging when given too many choices. Let's dig into the chaos!
Always excited to see new arrivals in the retail space, new items on a menu and even choices of who to spend time with. Cognitive impairment makes us feel overwhelmed by leaps and bounds, including following written or verbal instructions, listening intently to someone who really needs our ear, or choosing a meal plan.
Choice, Choose or Chose
Making Peace With Our Choices
Is it possible to be conscious every moment of our day as we make decisions? So if experts are saying they can prove that our brain thinks between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts a day, I believe them! In that same frame of thought, why do masses of people have a hard time focusing on mastering their lives? Because we were taught to put energy, power, thought and time into everything else but ourselves.
Take 2 Minutes
Could you take a 2 minute breather with a couple of deep breathes? Whether you're sitting or standing, focus on slowing thought patterns down is a huge help, and quite refreshing when we take the time.
Peace of Mind List
If you're anything like me you love some pretty paper and a good gel pen to declare things to happen. Yes, declaring peace of mind is a reality we desire, but such as life things pivot, change, dissolve, speed up and sometimes become stifled. Write one thing down every day for 21 days that will bring you peace of mind. Before bedtime or wine down time, check your list to see if tomorrows peace drifted into existence.
The more mature we become, it seems the responsibilities increase and the many complex decisions we have to make, creates doubt. It's okay to become sad or mad about a previous decision that turned out not so great. The double edge sword of choice, choosing and chose is, we can try again at the drop of a hat.
