Have you ever had a long day, felt totally fried and then made extremely bad food choices?

This insightful blog post related to coding explains why. It shows us how important it is to plan ahead with some healthy meals pre-made in the fridge if you know you’re going to have a long mentally intense day at work…because once you get home you will have absolutely no will power to resist junk food if you don’t already have something prepared. And the reverse is true…if you expend a lot of willpower trying to resist the junk food in your house or hold back from saying what you really think for days on end…you will have no brain power leftover to solve problems or concentrate at work. The blog post explains it much better than I can as to how willpower and cognitive processing draw from the same finite pool. Hopefully you can use this knowledge to your advantage! (I also love what a testament it is to the importance of good intuitive design, it has more ramifications than you would think.)
