Making Micro-Decisions:

Updated March 2022

In a single day, we may have anywhere between 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts. Many of these thoughts are repetitive or “me”-focused, while others are micro-decisions about what we do, how we think, and where we put our energy.  There choices are often non-conscious and born out of habit or a function of auto-pilot.

This month, we discuss micro-strategies to pause and guide your thoughts towards healthier, kinder, and more mindful decisions.

 Discussion  Françoise, Diana and Jen discuss micro-decisions and how they implement these small, mindful changes throughout their day.
