Using 'The Hunger Games' to Encourage Healthier Choices

Using 'The Hunger Games' to Encourage Healthier Choices | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

 

Wharton operations and information management professor Katherine Milkman loves to read about and listen to audiobooks on almost any topic, from behavioral economics to historical biographies. But she has a weak spot for addictive fiction novels like The Hunger Games. So a few years ago, when she was having trouble making it to the gym on a regular basis, she decided to allow herself to enjoy these less-than-scholarly audiobooks only when she was exercising. The result: Milkman began hitting the gym five days a week.

 

Fast forward five years, and Milkman decided to see if her experience restricting her more escapist reads to exercise time could be developed into an intervention capable of helping others with similar self-control struggles. In her research, she coined a new concept: temptation bundling, “which involves coupling instantly gratifying ‘want’ activities with engagement in a ‘should behavior’ that provides long-term benefits but requires the exertion of willpower,” according to one of her recent papers.

Recent Wharton research shows that the key to engaging in healthier behavior may be tying tempting activities -- like reading an escapist novel -- to things we know we should be doing.

Li ShiJia's comment, January 31, 7:55 AM
I find this article quite interesting I learnt that the key to engaging in healthier behaviour may be tying tempting activities -- like reading an escapist novel -- to things we know we should be doing. I personally am a big fan of a lot of books, including The Hunger Games. From this article, I learnt that temptation bundling, which involves coupling instantly gratifying ‘want’ activities with engagement in a ‘should behavior’ can provides long-term benefits.

CrossFit has some great exercises, but the culture of constantly pushing past your limits has some participants going too far. Yes, we do need to overload and challenge ourselves to achieve improvement, however overexerting ourselves and allowing someone else to drive us past a proper training load can have detrimental effects.

Christopher Taylor's curator insight, June 15, 2014 4:16 PM

There has been a lot of talk about how Crossfit is bad for people.  I think with any workout program problems can happen.  This is a great article about Rhabdo.  What do you think?

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy

Why It's Important To Keep Your Gut Healthy | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"Be honest: when was the last time you thought about how healthy your digestive system was?"

 

The truth is that we only tend to think about it when something goes wrong, but Gut Week is all about focussing on how important it is to consider what you eat.

 

Think of the digestive system as the pistons of an engine - to get the most amount of energy, and to ward off future illnesses, it's important to keep it running right.

Not Just What You Eat, When You Eat Matters

Not Just What You Eat, When You Eat Matters | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

"There is reason to think our eating patterns have changed in recent years, as many people have greater access to food and reasons to stay up into the night, even if just to watch TV. And when people are awake, they tend to snack. In a recent study published in the Cell Press journal Cell Metabolism stated that when it comes to weight gain, when you eat might be at least as important as what you eat."

 

“Every organ has a clock,” said lead researcher, Satchidananda Panda of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. That means there are times when our muscles, livers, intestines, and other organs will work at peak efficiency and other times when they are sleeping (more or less). When mice are restricted to eating for 8 hours,on a high-fat diet per day, they eat just as much as those who can eat in 24 hours, yet they are protected against obesity and other metabolic ills, the new study shows. The research suggests that the health consequences from a poor diet maybe a result from a mismatch between our eating schedules and our body clocks.

Eat Better and Stress Less: It’ll Make Your Cells (and Maybe You) Live Longer

Eat Better and Stress Less: It’ll Make Your Cells (and Maybe You) Live Longer | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
For the first time, researchers show how a plant-based diet, stress management and other lifestyle changes may lead to longevity.

 

It’s not quite the Fountain of Youth, but it may be the river that leads to it. In a paper published in the journal Lancet Oncology, scientists found that a small group of men who made changes in the way they ate and handled their emotional needs showed longer telomeres in their cells.
