I sometimes resent the energy it takes to be a consumer. Having too many choices takes too much of my energy.

When I complained about being attacked by mosquitos, a friend sent me a link to a bug-zapper gadget, saying she had heard about it, but not tried it.

It seemed like a good idea because I am sensitive to chemicals and ordinary repellents are apparently worse for me than for the mosquitos.

I have learned to be suspicious of outrageous claims, so I immediately checked for reviews of that gadget. There were none—just glowing ad copy repeated in several places. I did find reviews of similar items on Amazon, and after using an hour to compare features and prices, selected one and ordered it.

I have been using it. As far as I can tell, it has yet to zap a mosquito.

This all takes mental energy, bandwidth, and the more I use it on that, the less I have for other things. Writing this, I realize I need to reclaim my energy from this experience. I will do that using the process explained in this book.

Do you enjoy shopping, or hate it? Or is it somewhere in between? Let me know.
