In a world that often demands women to operate in both their personal and professional lives with unwavering strength, the epidemic of decision fatigue has become a silent struggle. The constant need to tap into our masculine energy for day-to-day, short-term, and long-term decisions, be it in family matters or business endeavors, can be overwhelming.
After working with thousands of women, these are the 7 common signs I see as a life and business coach-
- Procrastination: Decision fatigue can manifest as procrastination, where even seemingly simple choices become daunting. This delay in decision-making can hinder progress and create a sense of stagnation in both personal and business matters, especially for a spiritual woman who is motivated by energy and follows her intuition.
- Overthinking: Constantly mulling over decisions, especially minor ones, is a clear sign of decision fatigue. This mental loop can drain energy and focus, preventing you from fully engaging in your spiritual and entrepreneurial pursuits, not to mention deflate your confidence.
- Impaired Judgment: As decision fatigue sets in, the quality of decision-making may decline. This could lead to poor choices, whether in business strategies, spiritual practices, or personal life, potentially impacting your overall well-being. In fact, I recently experienced this myself when I made a bad judgment call in messenger and got scammed out of $400 👎
- Increased Stress and Anxiety: The weight of unresolved decisions, and decision overload, can contribute to heightened stress and anxiety levels. For a spiritual woman in business, this may interfere with keeping up on your own spiritual practices, like meditation or journaling, not taking inspired action, lack of sales and marketing activities and other areas of needed focus in her day to day. Not to mention it can literally cause so many physical symptoms of anxiety like heart palpitations, insomnia, headaches and full on panic attacks.
- Physical Fatigue: Decision fatigue doesn’t only affect the mind; it can manifest physically, beyond stress and anxiety symptoms, leading to exhaustion and total burnout. This physical (and emotional) weariness can limit a woman’s ability to fully bring her best self to her family, friends, business and most importantly, herself.
- Reduced Creativity: Decision fatigue is the quickest way to cripple creativity. As a spiritual woman in business you may find it challenging to tap into your innovative and intuitive gifts, impacting your ability to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to your entrepreneurial pursuits.
- Strained Relationships: The impact of decision fatigue often has a huge impact on our personal relationships. I know this all too well, I personally attribute this as a key factor in my divorce. You may experience strained personal connections due to the mental and emotional toll of constant decision-making, affecting your ability to even communicate. Sometimes even replying to a simple text message can feel overwhelming and cause a “shut down“.
Being a spiritual woman in business requires the right flow of the masculine and feminine energies. Decision fatigue can disrupt this flow, making it crucial to recognize these signs.
This may involve prioritizing decisions, practicing mindfulness, and seeking support to maintain a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
The good news is that there’s a transformative way to overcome decision fatigue, and it begins with the power of clarity.
This seven-step journey to regain control and step into a space where decisions become doorways to possibilities and new realities.
The Clarity Formula: A Seven-Step Path to Serene
C – Center Yourself
Begin by centering yourself amidst the chaos. Whether it’s the demands of daily life or the intricacies of business decisions, take a moment to breathe. Ground yourself in the present and reconnect with your inner wisdom. A calm mind is the foundation for sound decision-making. And you can overcome decision fatigue one decision at a time.
L – List Your Priorities
Create a simple list of your highest priorities for the day. Identify what truly matters to you in both your life and business. I don’t let my list get bigger than a post it note. This step is crucial in understanding where to direct your energy and focus. Let your priorities guide your decisions.
A – Assess Your Options
With priorities in mind, assess the options available to you. Break down decisions into manageable choices. By considering alternatives, you empower yourself with a broader perspective, making it easier to discern the most aligned path.
R – Reflect on Values
Reflect on your core values. Your decisions should align with these values to create a serene and clear life and business. When your choices resonate with what truly matters to you, your why, the mental fatigue associated with decision-making diminishes.
I – Integrate Self-Care
The most important question and decision you can make is asking yourself “what do I need in this moment?” And then, be brave enough to give it to yourself. Integrate self-care into your decision-making process. Remember that your well-being is paramount. Nurture your mind, body, and spirit, ensuring you’re in the best possible state to tackle life and business complexities.
T – Trust Your Intuition
Trust your intuition. Your inner-knowing, it is your greatest gift and your greatest weapon to fend off decision fatigue. Your intuition knows the right direction before your logical mind catches up. Embrace the wisdom within, allowing it to guide your decisions with a sense of confidence and assurance.
Y – Yield and Evolve
Be willing to yield and evolve. Recognize that decisions aren’t set in stone. Life and business are dynamic, and the ability to adapt is a strength. Embrace change as an opportunity for growth and true transformation.
