Striving to Thrive: Principles of Motivation, Goals and Self-Regulation
We all want to eat better, exercise more, get more sleep, or cut down on our unhealthy habits—but it’s not easy. All too often we encounter obstacles, temptations and disruptions to our routines. At times it can be difficult to motivate ourselves, and even more difficult to motivate the people we care about. In this course, we will discuss principles of motivation, goals and self-regulation, recent advances in these research areas, and how it applies to our health. This course will include small group discussions on common misconceptions and how course concepts can be applied to improve efforts towards our own health-related goals.
Course withdrawal must occur at least 48 hours prior to course commencement to receive a refund less a $25 administrative fee.
