Making New Year’s resolutions personal could actually make them stick

first_imgRead more:A behaviorist’s guide to New Year’s resolutions Read more:The psychology of New Year’s resolutions Bernice Plant is an Assistant Lecturer at Monash University. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.  Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply What are your personal motivations?The importance of ownership for personal motivation is captured nicely in what is known as the self-determination theory of motivation.This places a high level of importance on doing what we find to be intrinsically motivating or working from what is inherently rewarding or satisfying. It’s in contrast to extrinsic or external motivations which can create feelings of coercion when we follow goals imposed by invisible others.If you choose to exercise more as your New Year’s resolution because you think people will find you more attractive or because you feel guilty for not doing it, chances are you are working primarily from external sources of motivation.If, on the other hand, you find exercise interesting and enjoyable or feel it expresses a personal value to be healthy, you are likely to be working from internal, personal motivations.So, say your personal goal is to read 50 books in the year because you value knowledge. How do you put this into practice and make sure your resolution sticks?Say you want to read 50 books this year. How do you keep to it?Gaelle Marcel/UnsplashHow to put this into practiceOne simple behavior-change technique that can be applied to New Year’s resolutions is self-persuasion. This essentially involves generating an argument for why you would like to change a certain behavior.Try to consider what is most salient and personally motivating for you and what a certain change could bring that you value. Perhaps you value knowledge and empathy, and you believe the more books you read about people’s struggles, the greater understanding you will have of others.Maybe exercising more, like getting involved in group sports, will help connect you with your friends. Or perhaps you enjoy alone time, and going for long hikes will give you more opportunities for quiet contemplation.Although one of these examples may resonate with you, it’s possible these aren’t at all relevant to you. This is why it is important to examine what you find personally relevant.The self-persuasion technique has been successfully applied in a variety of settings, including producing moderate, short-term reductions in smoking and work-related stress, and increases in tipping and intentions to help others.Generating your own arguments is more effective in evoking change than reading multiple arguments generated by other people, even when the quality of the provided arguments is rated as being better than yours.But when using the self-persuasion technique, remember less may be more. You are better off generating one to two reasons for your intended change than trying to generate a long list of arguments.Also in studies that have tested this technique, participants have usually had to write their reasons down. This increased involvement may have also helped.And then?This is not the whole story of setting effective New Year’s resolutions. Changing behavior takes time and effort – particularly if you are trying to change a well-established habit.During the change process, reflect often: consider what is and what isn’t working, and how you could overcome obstacles that interfere with you achieving your goals.This is where you can apply other goal-setting and behavior-change techniques you may have learned about previously, such as understanding and altering what triggers and maintains your behavior.

Implementation intentions are particularly helpful in setting goals and overcoming obstacles. This technique requires setting specific if-then plans for how you will respond in a particular situation — such as how you will ensure you get your daily dose of exercise if it is raining.Five steps to setting personalised New Year’s resolutions:Generate a broad resolution or goal as a starting point (exercise more)reflect on your motivation for this goal: is it driven by internal motivations and aligned with other aspects of your personality? If not, revisit the first stepwrite down one or two reasons why the resolution is important for youwrite down plans for achieving your goal, including if-then strategiescontinue to review your progress and modify your personal goal as required.The most beautifully constructed goals will be ineffective if they aren’t personally relevant. Before you consider how to turn over your new leaf, it might be worth examining which leaf you want to turn over, and why.center_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Bernice Plant, Monash UniversityIf you feel you consistently fail at your New Year’s resolutions, you are not alone. Despite our good intentions, we’re pretty poor at changing our own behavior. We continue to smoke, eat or drink too much, and exercise too little, all of which affect our health and well-being.In trying to change behavior (including our own), we need to reduce resistance. You’ve likely heard some of the pitfalls of setting unspecific or unrealistic goals. Another contributor to resistance is when our intended action is not something we are personally motivated to do. Psychological studies show we can overcome resistance by setting goals that tap into what we find meaningful and that reflect our needs.Why New Year’s resolutions failWhy is it when we set a New Year’s resolution our behavior doesn’t change, or it only changes for a limited time? There is a common obstacle that could underlie the failure of changing behavior: resistance or more particularly inertia.Inertia is a form of resistance where we can’t motivate ourselves to perform a behavior. We know what we need to do, the intention is there, we just don’t do it.One trap we can fall into is setting goals that aren’t really our own – they’re not personalized. Instead, we often set generic resolutions, such as to exercise more.Are your goals what you expect others want from you or are they your own?from shutterstock.comThese may have been adopted from someone else’s goal or may be based on what we feel we should change, as per social expectations or norms.Adopting broad, generic goals may be a good starting point for change, but generic goals can also be conducive to resistance because they are low in personal relevance.Setting goals that draw on personal motivations produce greater confidence in our ability to change and a greater sense of ownership over the process. These lead to larger and more lasting changes in behavior.

Sue Ryder Care asks “can you match the pigeon?”

first_img Howard Lake | 3 August 2009 | News Sue Ryder Care asks “can you match the pigeon?” The walkers can choose one of four routes of between 8.25 and 2 miles in the beautiful Bolton Abbey Estate before gauging their start time and pace of walking to try and cross the finish line at the same time as the first pigeon returns to its loft. The main route, which is one twentieth of the distance that the pigeons will fly, will take walkers from the Cavendish Pavilion in a loop which includes a climb to the summit of Simon’s Seat. Other routes will pass the ‘Strid’ to Barden Tower and around the Priory to the sounds of the cartoon theme tune ‘Catch the pigeon.’Sue Ryder Care Fundraiser, Andrew Wood, is excited about the event which has Foresters as its main sponsor. “This is something that the whole family can get involved in, with everybody having an enjoyable day and an equal chance of winning the two seats in a flight of their own over the dales which has been kindly provided by Pennine Helicopters Ltd and Skipton Building Society.”Sue Ryder Care supporter and Skipton magician Mark Waddington has already signed up to take part in the event with his family. Mark said, “How the pigeons know where to come back to seems like real magic to me but I’m told they do so at an average of 40 miles per hour so we’ll have to take this into account, though we’ll also have to look at the wind direction and speed as well in order to try and match that first pigeon home.”Aside from raising money for the charity, the event is also symbolic of the work of Sue Ryder Care as Andrew Wood explained: “’Liberation’ is the pigeon racing term used to describe the special moment when the birds are set free to return home. As a charity that cares for people suffering from cancer and other life limiting illnesses we ‘liberate’ the lives of our patients and their families through our care, both at the hospice and in the community. Here at Manorlands Hospice we have recently launched a special 35th Anniversary Appeal to raise £1.3 million which will help us give an even greater level of care and help us liberate the lives of many more patients and their families.”Those unable to participate on the day can support the event by sponsoring one or more of the pigeons and giving them a name of their choice, be it a nick name or even a company name by contacting the fundraising office or logging onto www.justgiving.com/matchthepigeon.Entry into the event costs £7 and includes free parking in the Bolton Abbey Estate. People can register on line at www.matchthepigeon.org or ring the Manorlands Fundraising office for a paper entry form on 01535 640430.

Free Leonard Peltier!

first_imgLeonard PeltierNov. 22 will mark 13,439 days of incarceration for Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier. This year’s commemoration of the National Day of Mourning, to be held in Plymouth, Mass., will once again honor Peltier, a hero-in-the-struggle who has been unjustly imprisoned since 1976.The so-called “Thanksgiving” holiday is a stark reminder of the centuries of horrific assaults unleashed against Native peoples, first by European colonizers and then by U.S. administrations. Their lands were stolen, their people killed and their cultures and languages under siege.The myth of the “benevolent Pilgrims,” so glibly portrayed in U.S. history books, sharing their bounty with Indigenous peoples, is shattered when the truth is revealed. The real story is one of bigotry, injustice and violence aimed at this country’s original inhabitants.Racist discrimination, oppression and exploitation continue today, at the hands of corporations and by governments at all levels. The economic crisis has exacerbated the Native workers’ unemployment crisis. Since the recession began, the jobless rate has doubled for these workers in the Midwest. Moreover, in the Northern Plains region, only 44 percent of the Indigenous were employed last year. Accessible jobs are often low paying and come with few benefits, if any. At least one-third of Native people are impoverished.Banks and corporations get mammoth bailouts from this capitalist government, and trillions of dollars are spent to wage war and occupy lands abroad, yet workers and oppressed people here suffer. The Washington politicians who determine national budgets should ensure living-wage jobs, housing, health care and nutritious food to Indigenous and other super oppressed communities.At the traditional National Day of Mourning ceremonies, Native speakers tell of their history, pay homage to their ancestors and speak of their struggles throughout the Americas. They relate their efforts to survive today in the face of this anti-people system.Yet, they will also celebrate their militant history — the many struggles for political, economic and social rights, and for the recognition of their sovereignty and right to self-determination. Their basic tenets of international unity and solidarity always shine through.The call for “Freedom for Leonard Peltier” has echoed worldwide as millions of people have demanded that he be released from his nearly 37-year ordeal. They deplore the many violations of his civil liberties since his arrest. Prosecutors withheld crucial evidence from his attorneys at trial, and he was then railroaded to prison, charged with shooting two FBI agents.Since Peltier’s arrest, he has had much support from Native communities and other progressive forces in the U.S. and worldwide. His supporters are now organizing a “Bring Leonard Peltier Home 2012 Concert” at the historic Beacon Theater in New York City on Dec. 14.They are working hard to raise awareness of Peltier’s cause and garner public support for him as they step up their campaign to win him clemency. There has been no response from President Barack Obama, who has been deluged with petitions with thousands of signatures for Peltier’s freedom.The ailing 68-year-old Peltier is imprisoned in a U.S. penitentiary in Florida, thousands of miles from his nation, the Turtle Mountain Band in North Dakota. His defense committee asks supporters to send letters and messages of solidarity to Leonard Peltier, #89637-132, USP Coleman I, U.S. Penitentiary, P.O. Box 1033, Coleman, FL 33521.The struggle goes on. Workers World Party stands in solidarity with all Indigenous peoples on the 43rd National Day of Mourning, as we loudly demand, “Free Leonard Peltier!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Expulsion of two Spanish journalists deals blow to freedom of expression

first_img News Spanish journalists Paco Gómez Nadal and Pilar Chato agreed under pressure to be repatriated yesterday, 48 hours after being arrested during a demonstration by indigenous groups outside the parliament building in Panama City in protest against a mining law reform.While transiting through Costa Rica yesterday, the couple told journalists the Panamanian authorities pressured them to accept voluntary repatriation, which would allow them to return to Panama within two years, instead of four years if they had been deported.“Regardless of the legal nuances, Gómez and Chato were the victims of a politically motivated expulsion because their support for the indigenous cause as journalists and their involvement in the NGO Human Rights Everywhere ran counter to the Panamanian government’s interests” Reporters Without Borders said. “This case represents a denial of freedom of expression on a matter of public interest,” the press freedom organization added.Their expulsion serves as a reminder of the risks to which journalists are exposed when they specialize in covering sensitive environmental issues. Mining is a particularly sensitive issue in Latin America. Reporters Without Borders drew attention to the need to protect environmental journalists in a thematic report covering several continents released last June .____________28.02.11 – Two Spanish journalists facing deportation after arrest during indigenous protestTwo Spanish journalists who were arrested during a demonstration by indigenous groups outside the parliament building in Panama City on 26 February – Paco Gómez Nadal and his wife, Pilar Chato – are still being held and are facing the possibility of deportation for allegedly encouraging the indigenous groups to protest against a proposed reform of the mining law.Reporters Without Borders regards the legal proceedings initiated by the authorities in this case as suspicious and irregular, and calls on the National Directorate for Migration to immediately rescind the order for their detention.A freelance contributor to the national daily La Prensa and to several foreign newspapers, Gómez is well known for his support for Panama’s indigenous population. As a result, he had been threatened in the past with withdrawal of his residence permit, as he told Reporters Without Borders last July.Following his arrest, President Ricardo Martinelli publicly accused Gómez of being an “agitator” and of “inciting” the protest in violation of the restrictions imposed on foreign residents. The Panamanian authorities claim that this is clear in a video of the demonstration.“That is false,” Gómez’s lawyer, Giulia de Santis, told Reporters Without Borders after viewing the video. “On the contrary, it shows police officers warning Paco that they are going to charge the demonstrators. They take him and Pilar away immediately afterwards.”Initially detained in the parliament building, Gómez and Chato were quickly transferred to the headquarters of the National Directorate for Migration, which issued an order for their detention. “This is against the law, which provides for this kind of measure only when someone is residing in the country illegally, and both Pilar and Paco are legal residents,” De Santis said, adding that it was clear that “there is a political desire to expel them.”Reporters Without Borders shares this view and regards President Martinelli’s public comments as a violation of the principle of the separation of powers.The operations of multinational mining corporations and the threat they pose to local communities are a sensitive issue in Central America, one that can create problems for the journalists who specialize in covering it. In El Salvador, community Radio Victoria and its lawyer, Héctor Berríos, were again the targets of serious threats last month.

Journalist driven out by death threats

Journalist Gustavo Rojas Gabalo, who was badly injured in a shooting on 4 February, is still in a very serious condition. The departure of Antonio Sánchez Sánchez follows that of two other journalists forced into exile this year,” the press freedom organisation said.“The future of the profession in Colombia will be seriously jeopardised if this forced exodus goes on. Once again we urge the Colombian authorities to guarantee the safety of journalists, particularly in the conflict zones”, the organisation said.His lawyer, María Milene Andrade, said the journalist began receiving telephoned death threats after one of his articles appeared in the El Meridiano de Córdoba, revealing there had been a secret guerrilla incursion into the Rusia regiment, in the Valencia district.This was denied by the local authorities but confirmed by President Alvaro Uribe.Sánchez Sánchez also received death threats in 2004 after writing several exposés about corruption and administrative irregularities.

Anton Hammerl’s death confirmed

Trees down at hospital

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Posted on February 12, 2014 by Bernie EnglishSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up FOUR large trees have come down in the storm at the University Hospital in Dooradoyle.The trees fell from their position along the hospital boundary near the side entrance to the old Nurses Home in Dooradoyle.Emergency traffic arrangements are in place. The side road is now blocked and the hospital side entrance via the Nurses Home has been closed for safety reasons.Staff, patients and visitors have been warned to stay away from the area and on no account venture out to look at the incident.A spokesman for the hospital said that the trees are Macrocarpa, an evergreen variety that was quite commonly planted in  county Limerick in the past.“Professional tree surgeons inspect all trees on the hospital campus regularly and an extensive programme of pruning was carried out in December during which a number of older trees were felled,” the spokesman said.
