How to make smart decisions more easily

Explore the psychology of decision fatigue, what kinds of choices lead us to this state and what we can do to fight it.


Everything our bodies do— whether physical or mental— uses energy. Studies have found that many individuals seem to have a daily threshold for making decisions, and an extended period of decision-making can lead to cognitive exhaustion. So, what kinds of choices lead us to this state, and what can we do to fight fatigue? Explore the psychology of decision fatigue and ways you can avoid fatigue.

Message from Newly Appointed Vice President Andy Ramirez

One of the beautiful things about living in Fairfield is Matt Garcia saw what our city could be and started working towards it. What does our city look like through Matt’s eyes? And how can we make that dream of his come true?

It starts with something simple. Something as simple as picking up a piece of trash. By doing this, we are saying thank you for giving us a city where even the homeless and careless have more than enough to eat. We are living in gratitude.
How can we work towards Matt’s dream of supporting our youth? It’s easy. We encourage them to work hard at their goals, and we invest in their education. We encourage them to ask for help on the hard days and remind them that there is always someone there to help. 

Imagine what Fairfield would look like if all our kids knew there was a group of people working for their future. Know that the Matt Garcia foundation is this group of people. I think Matt was right when he said, “This is the place to be!”

Our students have hopes and dreams. We’re showing them the ways and fundraising the means.

What happens when we sleep?

Sleep is central to maintaining your physical and mental health, but many people don't sleep enough. We all do it, but what happens to us when we sleep?
