We are Psychology majors at the University of Georgia digging deep into the science of goals & self-regulation.
Step Up Your Game
Have you gotten your steps in today? In this episode we talk to Rebecca, a step-off expert. Rebecca went from just trying to get in 10,000 steps per day to eventually getting in 105,000 in one day. She did this in a Step-Off competition, in order to win $100. However, as Rebecca explains she was motivated by something much greater than money. We explore the psychology of goal pursuit through the eyes of someone extremely competitive.
Life After Loss
In this episode we explore the impact of a tragic accident on two parents' goals. Evie and Bill experienced the tragic loss of their two sons in a tragic and horrific car accident. They tell us about how they are coping with the accident and how their life has changed. They also show us how people can help others who are grieving. Evie and Bill are our heroes, not because of this tragic incident but because they show us the true power of love, bravery, and strength.
