My Favorite Healthy Snack: Canned Fish!

I’ve become obsessed with canned fish after stumbling on this product: Season Skinless & Boneless Mackerels in Water, No Salt Added, 4.375-Ounce Tins (Pack of 12).

I’ve tried many brands of sardines and canned fish over the years, but this one takes the cake hands down as the best tasting product I’ve ever tried. I try to eat a pack a day at least to get all those yummy omega-3s into my system (as well as all the other amazing nutrition). I highly recommend checking out Season Brand’s full line of products.

What is Decision Fatigue

Great study on the factors that determined the judicial rulings for criminals up for parole. Researchers found that as the day went on, the percentage of paroles granted dropped drastically. At the beginning of the day, a judge was more likely to give a favorable ruling close to 65 percent of the time. As the day wore on and the judge had to make more and more decisions, the likelihood of getting a favorable ruling dropped the longer the day went on.

This study is famous for multiple reasons, one of which is the theory that we humans have what’s called “Decision fatigue” or the concept that we only have so much decision “energy” for the day and the more we exhaust that energy store without rest the more likely we are to be unable to make objectively good decisions.

This concept applies to not just the criminal system but your life as well. As your day goes on, you are using up your energy to make all kinds of decisions. The more your day lags on and you use up this energy, the more likely you are to succumb to doing things that you normally wouldn’t have.

The next time you work a long day of work and you “just don’t care” what you eat for dinner, you’ll know exactly what is happening.

Fitness Tip: Train with a training partner

You could also call your training partner your “accountability” partner because he or she is there to make sure you show up and do the work. Not showing up will let them down, and as a result, you are that much more likely to stick with your program. This is a powerful accountability technique that is proven effective time and time again. You also receive the benefit of always having a spotter, which will make your training safer.
