January AW - New Year's resolutions done right!
Licensed psychologist Martin Oscarsson is a co-author of the book Tio i tolv (Natur & Kultur), a book on how to succeed with New Year’s resolutions and personal goals. In this talk, exciting psychological research is interspersed with tips, tricks and hands-on exercises on how to increase chances of success when striving toward personal goals.
At the start of every new year, millions of people around the world pledge to change some aspect of their lives. More often than not, New Year’s resolutions relate to positive behavior change, such as quitting bad habits and forming new and more beneficial ones. Unfortunately, most people who try to lose weight, quit smoking or start exercising fail, most of them during the first three months of the new year. Increasing the likelihood of people succeeding with their New Year’s resolutions and other personal goals could both be beneficial for the individual and for society. On the basis of this, psychologists Martin Oscarsson, Per Carlbring and Alexander Rozental, at Stockholm University, followed over 1,000 New-Year’s resolvers in the largest study on New Year’s resolutions conducted to date.
In the study, a majority of participants considered themselves successful in sustaining their resolution – at every follow-up. This result was in part aligned with previous research on the subject, indicating that New Year’s resolutions done right could be an effective method for behavior change. This, and much more, at this year’s Annual Meeting!
