You’re More Likely To Make Bad Decisions With Your Money After 6 p.m.

You’re more likely to splurge on things you can’t afford after work.  People are inclined to binge spend after 6 p.m. when they’re mentally drained from a day at the office, a new study suggests.  Research shows that after hours of contemplating projects and assignments at work coupled with thinking about little things like when to exercise and what you’ll have for breakfast or lunch, eventually wears down your willpower for making rational decisions later on in the day.  This “decision fatigue” impacts our mental capacity to practice self-control, explaining why some people tend to splurge on online shopping, happy hour and other things they don’t need at night.
