Have you ever stood in front of your closet in the morning, feeling indecisive about what to wear? It’s a common feeling, but did you know that the act of making that decision can actually drain your decision-making ability for the rest of the day? That’s right, decision fatigue is a real thing, and it can negatively impact your productivity, creativity, and overall well-being.
Successful people know this, which is why many of them choose their outfit the night before. By removing the stress of deciding what to wear in the morning, they free up valuable mental energy that can be used towards more important decisions throughout the day.
For example, former President Barack Obama was known for wearing the same suit every day to reduce decision fatigue. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has also been known to wear the same gray t-shirt every day. Is it even useful to mention Steve Jobs?
But it’s not just about wearing the same thing every day, it’s about pre-planning your outfit in advance. Oprah Winfrey has spoken about how she chooses her outfits for the week every Sunday night, while Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, has a team that helps her plan her outfits in advance.
Pre-planning your outfit can also save you time and reduce stress in the morning. You won’t have to rush through your closet trying to put together an outfit, and you can feel confident knowing that you’ve already made a decision.
So, the next time you’re feeling overwhelmed by your wardrobe choices, try pre-planning your outfit the night before. It may seem like a small change, but it can have a big impact on your decision-making ability and overall well-being.
