Description

We all know that we become tired over the day. Besides the phenomenon called "sleep pressure" that is related to the stacking of certain hormones, there are also other mechanisms that are significantly impacting us. Science calls them "ego depletion" and "decision fatigue". While they are related, they are not exactly the same thing.

In this episode, I talk about these phenomena, how they affect our everyday lives and strategies to cope.
