Tell me if you relate to any of these situations: 

  • You walk into a room and forget why you went there. 
  • You forget names or stumble over words as you speak 
  • You have an endless to-do list running through your mind of things you can’t forget to get done 

If any of these sound familiar, you’ll want to catch this week’s episode. This week, we’re talking all about cognitive load and decision fatigue and how to reduce mental clutter and create more spaciousness in your mind.  

In this episode, I give a deep overview about what cognitive load and decision fatigue are. We talk about the brain science behind why they happen and how they’re a very natural response to a very old brain attempting to operate in modern society. 

I give such a deep overview, because I want you to know that you’re not a failure, you're not weak, you’re not deficient in some way if you drop a ball or forget something. You’re a human with a brain. That’s it. 

Finally, we go into the 4 R’s of reducing cognitive load to create more mental spaciousness: 

  • Reduce  
  • Replicate 
  • Regorganize 
  • Act Rapidly 

I hope this episode helps you understand your mind a little better and helps you develop a sense of compassion for yourself as a human being just trying to do the best they can.  

You’re doing great.
