Beware, your mood can seriously affect your ability to make good decisions

Beware, your mood can seriously affect your ability to make good decisions

bh  Ever heard the advice about never food shopping while you’re hungry?  Hunger can do weird things to your usually rational brain and mean you end up buying more of what you want RIGHT NOW! (which is pretty much anything you can get your hands on if you’re really hungry) rather than what you’d usually choose and maybe what’s better for you.  In essence, you’re unlikely to ‘choose’ wisely on an empty stomach and there are only so many Mars Bars on toast (poached or deep fried) you can stomach for breakfast…  The same analogy works for almost any decision making – the mood you’re in can seriously impact on the decision you make and may not be the decision you would have made, all things being equal.   So before you make a decision of any consequence, make sure you are in your right and strongest mind, feeling positive rather than sad, mad or ill and that you’re feeling full rather than empty and energised rather than tired.

PS. If you are reading this after you’ve made a decision on an ‘empty stomach’ and are regretting it, you can always make another decision one.
