As soon as I woke up this morning I fiddled about in the kitchen trying to decide what to eat. I was uncharacteristically hungry and naturally undecided on what should my breakfast be. After finally, albeit unoriginally, deciding on a piece of Graham toast I then had to decide on the plate, the knife, the napkin . . . The result? It took me about half an hour to arrive at a conclusion and ‘prepare’ the most plain piece of toast. And then about 2 minutes to actually eat it.
Anyone wondering why I’ve been talking about my boring breakfast for the last paragraph? Because it is my honest opinion that the many choices that surround us are paralysing our very existence. Our fundamental needs are nowadays far from being basic. Whether you’re going out for dinner, or making dinner at home there is a vast choice of restaurants, menus, and even tastes to cater for. The both consumerist and global society we now live in has ensured that you can find shops and/or restaurants that range from American, Greek, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, etc on the same block. And if you do decide on going out don’t even get me started on getting dressed.
Should I go for a dress, a skirt and a top, a skirt and a blouse, pants and a blouse? Endless questions lead to an endless evening. And it really isn’t our fault that our society is as consumerist as they come, yet in the end it’s you that will most probably end up going to bed on an empty stomach or on the lonely bag of chips that was left in the kitchen cupboard. Sure not all of us are so incapable on making decisions, and consequently assuming responsibility as I am, yet you cannot deny that these days decisions don’t come easy.
However, it is still our society that comes to the rescue, at least in the ‘what should I wear department’ with an all-in-one choice: jumpsuits! Whatever you call it: jumpsuit, playsuit, romper jumper; and whichever style you go for one shoulder, cut-out shoulder, denim, vintage-y, animal print, embellished, short, long, or cropped, this item remains an easy, comfortable and fashionable choice. Agreed, this is probably not one of the toughest of life’s decisions, yet in such a hectic and fast world I’m not one to disregard an easy choice. And you shouldn’t either 🙂
*I’m sure most of you already know ‘The paradox of choice’ and why more really is less, for does who missed this one in the vast array of books that are out there I recommend it as an excellent and helpful read. And, of course Jonah Lehrer’s ‘How we decide’, better decisions made easy 😉
