We can all relate to a situation where we have been tired, stressed, or generally not at our best and found we then made choices we later wish we hadn’t, or just struggled to make them at all. This in essence is what decision fatigue is – an exhausting of our capacity to choose in a rational, well-considered, and timely manner.

How to spot the most common symptoms of decision fatigue

The most obvious sign will be an increasing rashness. We become more influenced by our emotions and can either find ourselves choosing quickly without full consideration of all the facts, or we end up winding down endless spirals of thought and never quite get to a comfortable conclusion.

We can also generally feel the weight of the world more intensely, we may experience low mood, headaches, generalized musculoskeletal pain, anxiety, broken sleep, and loss of concentration.

These effects will extend outside of the workplace too. You may have created the decision fatigue in the office but then on your way home you could find skip your gym class because you’re so mentally exhausted, you end up opting for a ready meal over cooking dinner as you’d planned because the motivation is no longer there, and/or you more rashly decide to spend an exorbitant amount of money online shopping because your logical weighing up of things has been firmly left behind. Here are some tips on how to combat decision fatigue…

Nourish the nervous system

The more resilient your nervous system is to pressure, the more it can take in terms of burden. I myself, and the majority of my clients, turn to the Motion Nutrition nootropics (cognitive enhancers) Power Up and Unplug on a daily basis to create that tolerance to strain by providing all the nutrients it needs to function at its very best.

Pick your battles

Some things need to be deliberated and considered on a case-by-case basis, and some things can just be so. If you don’t need to keep making new choices then don’t, meal planning would be a good example here. Pick a rotating selection of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, decide at the beginning of the week what you’ll be having, and take this concern out of your day-to-day, this frees up space for other things.

Know your peak performance time

I would hope most people start their days off the back of a good night’s sleep and feeling at their best, this would then be the time I suggest they maximize on in terms of those bigger or more taxing tasks. Get these out of the way first thing rather than spreading them over the course of the day, this prevents that progressive strain from building as you tire.

Give yourself positive feedback

Decision fatigue creates a feeling of being out of control but marking the completion of tasks as you go creates reinforcement that you are progressing forward. A tidy to-do list that gets things ticked off is a great way to both keep yourself on track and create a sense of clarity if you feel yourself going off-piste. I would clarify here that by tidy, I also mean succinct, stick to 5-7 things per day otherwise you’ll end up with a list that adds to the overwhelm rather than aiding with it.

Break wisely

I will often encounter people who fear stepping away from something even if they’re struggling as they take this as a form of failure, however, a well-timed recess can actually be exactly what you need. Just 15-20 minutes of walking out in the fresh air, a quick stretch, some deep breathing exercises, even taking a short nap, all of these offer a moment of calm for the body and mind to come back to itself and allow you to dive back in, cognitive capacity restored. If you track back up to my suggestion of knowing your peak performance times you could also identify your weak points and factor in a longer daily break, say at 3.30/4 pm for an hour.

Make this when you do your gym session, you’ll feel revitalized and then be able to crack through to the end of the day at a far higher level of efficiency compared to if you’d slogged on through before trying to drag yourself to the gym after work. This will be limited by your working situation but if there is flexibility there, then make the most of it where you can.

‘Immoral’ to advise family and friends on life choices, says Cambridge

It is a commonly held belief that it is our duty as family and friends to offer advice and guidance to those close to us when it comes to making important life choices. However, a recent article published by Cambridge philosopher, Dr. Jane Smith, argues that it is actually “immoral” to do so.

Dr. Smith’s argument centers around the concept of autonomy, or the right of an individual to make their own decisions and live their life as they see fit. She argues that by offering unsolicited advice, we are essentially trying to impose our own beliefs and values onto others, thereby infringing on their autonomy.

Furthermore, Dr. Smith points out that even well-intentioned advice can often be misguided or based on our own biases and experiences, rather than a true understanding of the situation or person in question. She states that “our understanding of the world and what is best for ourselves and others is limited and fallible. It is therefore morally suspect to act as if we have a monopoly on wisdom and to impose our views on others.”

It’s not to say that we should never offer advice or guidance, but rather that we should do so in a way that respects the autonomy of the person we are speaking to. Dr. Smith suggests that we should instead offer support and be a sounding board for their thoughts and ideas, rather than trying to steer them in a particular direction.

Additionally, Dr. Smith highlights that in some cases, offering advice can be downright harmful. For example, in situations where the person is experiencing abuse or exploitation, offering advice can inadvertently reinforce the power dynamics at play and further entrench the victim in their situation. It’s important to understand that everyone has different life experiences and different life choices.

In conclusion, Dr. Smith’s article serves as a reminder that while we may have the best intentions when offering advice to our loved ones, it is important to approach these conversations with humility and respect for the autonomy of the other person. Instead of trying to impose our own beliefs and values, we should strive to offer support and create a safe space for open and honest communication. This way, we can empower our loved ones to make the best choices for themselves, and live their life to the fullest.

It was in 2007 when a devastating murder case occurred, i.e., Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry. In this case, both the murdered boy and the murderer were teenagers. According to some of the reports, the victim of the case, Gabriel Kuhn, was only 12 years old, whereas the murderer was 16 years old.

Both were gamers and got along for two reasons one was because they were neighbours, and the second was that both were playing the same game called Tibia. Since their interests were the same, that’s why they became good friends, but according to medical reports, Daniel Patry was mentally unstable and would quickly get angry at small things.

Daniel Patry was good at the same game and would earn lots of digital coins in the game; moreover, he would lend digital coins to his other friends in his neighborhood. One day he also lent 20,000 digital coins to his friends Gabriel Kuhn, and things got worse when Kuhn refused to pay upon Patry’s request.

How murder happened: Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry

According to official authorities, Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry were good friends, and they would play the same game called Tibia because Patry would have lots of digital coins he would lend to his friends. One day Kuhn asked him for some coins in return; Patry shared 20,000 digital coins with him, but when Patry asked to return his coins, Kuhn refused to do that, which made Patry furious and decided to kill him.

He brutally killed Kuhn by stabbing him with a sharp tool. Still, initially, the investigation team had no idea about the killer until they further investigated the famous murder case of the teen gamers and found out the killer was no one else but his 16 years old fiend- Daniel Patry.

Patry was sentenced to jail for three years, and it is expected that after three years, he was set free because h was under 18. Otherwise, he could be in jail for the rest of his life.

Patry’s parent’s reaction

According to various reports, his parents were lovely and gentle people, and they had no bad terms with anyone in the neighbourhood, meaning Patry’s upbringing was in a friendly family. Furthermore, his parents added that they had noticed some psychological changes in Patry’s behaviour as he would get angry at small talk, and his academic performance was significantly dropped. He would stay alone most of the time without socializing with family and the neighbourhood.

They even showed him to a psychiatrist because his condition was worsening daily.

Final words

The case of Gabriel Kuhn and Daniel Patry became famous again, and people on the internet frequently talk about it, especially gaming enthusiasts. The murder occurred as a result of Kuhn refusing to pay back 20,000 digital coins to Patry, which Patry had earned in the game.

The total worth of those coins in today’s time worth around $1.75, which cost Kuhn his life. Finally, Patry was proven the murderer and was sent to jail for three years.
