Decision fatigue is when the mind becomes fatigued after a sustained period of decision making.

Making decisions is a cognitively taxing process, and decision making ability declines after long sequences of decisions.

Decision fatigue in recovery is one thing many people struggle with. That's because eating disorder and hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery requires you to make so many decisions each day.

This includes decisions about what to eat, how much, when to eat, alongside other decisions like changing your exercise routine, the decision to challenge thoughts and even decisions relating to planning and following through with other recovery aligned actions.

If you feel like you're procrastinating or avoiding making decisions in recovery, or feel like you have no energy left to make another decision, then this podcast is for you.
