daily inspiration: the peril of options (1 of 2)

Posted on: March 3, 2011

I’ve always liked having choices. What’s best? What would bring the most happiness?

But I can’t tell you how many times, when I was a little younger, that I would sit in a restaurant staring at the menu, trying to decide. In fact, when I found out I had some food allergies, it was a relief to have fewer dishes to choose from!

Research shows that having more options brings greater unhappiness, loneliness and depression. And yet, we live in a world of choice. From smart phones to online dating, there may be something better right around the corner – so why commit?

Next: how to choose.
