Less Is More: Decision Fatigue

Bart and I have finally found a house! We couldn’t be happier and excited, but I can’t deny that it has been overwhelming. Of course, I am fully aware that renovation and moving are stressful, but it has made me all the more aware of the number of decisions modern day life demands us to make. It never occurred to me for instance that we would have to choose a color for the front door. Who thinks about these things? Well, not me anyways. I realise that all of these decisions are first world problems. However, decision fatigue really is (becoming) a problem in our part of the world.

How To Be Happy Review For #Careerlions

As I mentioned in my review on Notes on a Nervous Planet, I recently purchased How To Be Happy by Eva Woods. I usually get my books via Amazon.co.uk, as book prices in England can be significantly lower than in the Netherlands. The shipping costs are not bad at all and I find that it is a great way to add to my book collection. Especially pre-ordering cookbooks by Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson. How To Be Happy is one of the first fiction books that I have read in ages. It was on sale and the reviews were great. Also, the topics discussed are very current and near to my heart. In today’s blog, I will provide you with my review of the book as well as some incredible insights and my take on the devastating topics in the book.

We like to be a little more on the active side during our holiday and after some consultation on the weather in our top choices, Hawaii made the cut. As Hawaii is more breathtaking than I could have ever imagined, here are 8 reasons why you should also consider booking your trip to Hawaii!
