How many hours a day do you spend making decisions?

How about 3 hours a day!  The crazy thing is that’s how much time is spent on only four daily decisions. Deciding what to have to eat, what time to go to bed and what to wear and watch are the big four.

The most difficult everyday decisions to make

  1. What TV show or film to watch
  2. What to have to eat
  3. What to wear for the day / an event
  4. Whether to buy something new e.g. new clothes or shoes
  5. Whether to exercise or not

If you change your mind a lot, you are not alone. The average adult changes their mind twice per decision.
