9 tips to give yourself the best shot at sticking to…

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply By Joanne Dickson, Edith Cowan UniversityFor many cultures, the dawn of the new year is marked not only with celebration, but also the opportunity for personal reflection and growth.But as the year progresses, our initial drive for self-betterment can falter.The good news is our tendency to give up can be circumvented. There are various ways we can strengthen our commitment to our new year’s goals.A mismatch between aim and actionsIn early 2020, my colleagues and I surveyed 182 participants to study personal goal factors that promoted well-being and sustained people’s pursuit of their most important new year’s resolution.We found 74% of participants listed their most important resolution as the same, or nearly the same, as in the previous year.More than half of the resolutions focused on either “diet” (29%) or “exercise” (24%). This suggests health-related goals tend to get rebooted each year — perhaps because New Year’s Day follows plenty of end-of-year festivities and feasting.Furthermore, despite the participants reporting a strong commitment to their listed resolution, about two-thirds gave up within one month. Other studies have shown similarly high rates for not sticking with new year’s resolutions.Generating meaning to sustain effortIf you’re wanting to set yourself a resolution for 2021, a good place to start is to reflect on the year that was.Our personal reflection on 2020, and the key lessons we took away from it, will help determine our hopes and visions for the year ahead.Due to the coronavirus pandemic, 2020 was marked by prolonged lockdowns, isolation, loss, and shifts in opportunity. But personal growth and strength can stem from such experiences, as past research has revealed.Living through difficult and stressful times can pave the way for a greater appreciation for life, deeper self-understanding, and increased personal resilience (which means being able to bounce back quicker).When setting resolutions, it’s important they’re linked to meaningful goals and values that can sustain motivation.For example, the resolution to “lose five kilos” will more likely endure in the face of obstacles, difficulties, or other competing resolutions if it’s linked to higher personal values, such as beliefs about one’s health or appearance.If you’re wondering whether your motivation to reach a certain goal will dwindle later on, look at why you want to achieve the goal in the first place. What does it really mean to you? ShutterstockOur study also found “goal flexibility”, which refers to being able to adapt to various situations, was positively associated with mental well-being. In turn, this was associated with a greater chance of sticking to new year’s resolutions.So being adaptable in the process of meeting your goals will not only improve your general well-being, but it will also help you pursue your new year’s resolutions.Tips for setting your 2021 new year’s resolutionsWhen it comes to sticking to resolutions, insight gleaned from psychology research can be distilled into several practical and easy-to-apply tips.1) Set resolutions that match your deeper valuesYour personal beliefs and hopes have a key role in sustaining your motivational impetus and keeping you focused. This form of motivation is associated with increased personal well-being.2) Try to set “new” resolutionsThis is preferable to recycling old ones. If you still want to pursue a resolution from last year, try to be more specific in your approach.3) Set resolutions as specific plansThese should account for factors such as time, place and people. Specific plans provide the mental cues needed to stick to our goals.This is because they’re also less mentally taxing than more vague or generic plans that require further thinking. For instance, consider this resolution:I will walk for at least 30 minutes around the nearby lake with my friend Sam on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings.It already sets a framework that provides plenty of mental cues and strategies on which to follow up. Also, including another person in the plan also sets a greater sense of responsibility, accountability, and social enjoyment — compared with a more vague resolution such as:I’ll go on more walks this year.4) Identify and imagine your desired positive outcomeVisualizing your goals will help keep you focused on identifying the specific resources your resolution requires. It will also help mobilize sustained pursuit of the goal.5) Reward small gains along the wayEnjoying small progress gains is not only pleasurable, but it will also help to motivate you.Taking stock of how far you’ve come in the process of achieving a goal can provide the internal drive needed to see it to the end. Shutterstock6) Set resolutions you want to pursue, rather than those you think you shouldResearch consistently shows pursuing freely chosen goals that are internally motivated enhances well-being. Meanwhile, goals that are externally motivated are associated with psychological distress and are less likely to be achieved.Examples of external motivation include doing something because the situation demands it, because it might please someone else, or to avoid shame or guilt that may arise if it isn’t done.7) Be flexibleIf your resolution isn’t working for you, reset it or adjust it to make it more meaningful and/or achievable.8) Be realisticThe more realistic your resolution is, the more achievable it will be and the less likely you are to set yourself up for failure.9) Learn from past failuresInstead of engaging in self-criticism and negative self-evaluation, a positive attitude towards failed resolutions can help you do better next time.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

The image was taken using a microscope; the worms are actually about 1 millimeter in length. Credit: Sternberg Laboratory/CaltechResearchers at Caltech are exploring how animals sleep and have made some interesting discoveries.Elephants, cats, flies, and even worms sleep. It is a natural part of many animals’ lives. New research from Caltech takes a deeper look at sleep in the tiny roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, or C. elegans, finding three chemicals that collectively work together to induce sleep. The study also shows that these chemicals—small proteins called neuropeptides that regulate neural activity—each control a different sleep behavior, such as the suppression of feeding or movement.The results, accepted for publication in the journal Current Biology, suggest that other organisms, perhaps even humans, might similarly regulate individual components of sleep.“The idea that multiple peptides work together to control sleep and its individual behaviors may translate to other animals,” says Paul Sternberg, the Thomas Hunt Morgan Professor of Biology at Caltech and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. “C. elegans is a simple animal model that allows us to isolate key molecular pathways. We start there and the information trickles up to other animal models.”C. elegans, which is about the size of the comma in this sentence, can be induced to sleep by certain stressors, such as heat. Researchers have used this behavior to get at the root of what regulates the worm’s sleep. The transparent organisms, which live for only a few weeks, can be easily observed through microscopes. In 2007, a former Caltech postdoc, Cheryl Van Buskirk, now at California State University, Northridge, discovered that one cell alone, known as the ALA neuron, is responsible for inducing sleep in C. elegans; if you remove that cell, the worms cannot fall asleep.In the new study, Sternberg and his team isolated genes that encode various neuropeptides that are produced at high levels within this one sleep-inducing neuron. They discovered that knocking out three of the peptides (nlp-8, flp-24, and flp-13) in the worms prevented them from being able to sleep.“Removing just three neuropeptide genes had the same result as taking out the entire ALA cell,” says graduate student Ravi Nath, lead author of the new study.When the researchers added the neuropeptides back, one by one, into insomniac worms, they discovered that certain sleep behaviors were restored. The peptide flp-13 suppressed feeding patterns; flp-13 and nlp-8 inhibited defecation; and flp-24 blocked movement in the worms.“The different neuropeptides may act in parallel to control the sleep state,” says Nath. “You can think of the peptides as workers building a house—or the state of sleep. One is like an electrician and the other a plumber, for example, working together as a team.”The researchers say there are still many questions left to pursue. They want to investigate to what extent the roles of these neuropeptides overlap with each other, and if they also have other purposes outside of regulating sleep.The Current Biology study, titled, “C. elegans Stress-Induced Sleep Emerges from the Collective Action of Multiple Neuropeptides,” was funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the National Institutes of Health, and the Della Martin Postdoctoral Fellowship. Other authors include Elly Chow and Han Wang of Caltech, and Erich Schwarz of Cornell University.

The average time taken to sell rose this quarter from eight weeks to nine in the county, and from five weeks to seven in the city.The REA Average House Price Survey concentrates on the actual sale price of Ireland’s typical stock home, the three-bed semi, giving an accurate picture of the second-hand property market in towns and cities countrywide.Across the country, despite fears of a downturn in the market due to lockdown, the price of a three-bedroomed semi-detached house fell by just -0.15% over the past three months to €234,667, an annual decline of -0.56%.“Although sales slowed during the lockdown, they did happen and, despite fears, very few fell through or had to be renegotiated,” said REA spokesperson Barry McDonald.“Changes in the world of work are having an immediate effect on the second-hand housing market with a nationwide trend emerging of buyers looking to move 15 minutes outside of their urban location where they can get more space for the same money.“We are finding that people are looking for three things – more space, gardens and a guarantee of better broadband, where transport was previously the highest priority.“While the current outlook is positive, and there seems to be a lot of pent-up demand, it may be Q3 before we see the effect of Covid-19 on the market and on the outcome of mortgage approvals granted before the lockdown.”last_img read more
