How difficult is it for you to make decisions?

For me, some days I will talk myself into and out of taking action in one way or another for hours.

I need to go for a run. I need to mop the floor. I need to write that blog post. I need to take the car in for tire rotation.I can get bogged down trying to decide which activity takes priority.

Making a list is helpful. That way I can see what’s been done and what still needs doing; however, that doesn’t mean I will be able to jump right into the job.

According to a recent article in AARP MagazineEXERCISE can increase ones ability to make decisions, even when it’s in short 10 to 20 minute bursts of moderate exercise (around 60% of your maximum ability). Why is this?

Exercise increases blood flow to the brain. When I begin my day with a workout, the rest of the day seems to be more manageable.

Just another reason to stay active as you age!
