Learn to gradually expand your non-auto transportation without aiming for perfection. In this 1-hour session, in-person, or in two 30 minute phone calls, talk with an experienced health behavior counselor to set goals and overcome barriers that stand between your good intentions and a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Even trying once a month can be a good start. In addition to environmental and economic benefits, active transportation provides great health advantages such as increased exercise and stress reduction.

For Stanford employees, there will be support for accessing Commute Club opportunities, if desired. For questions, call Jane Rosten, LCSW, at 498-4744.

Understanding the Science of Willpower: In Managing Your Weight, Exercise, and Other Health Challenges
Tue 08/14 12:00 pm-1:15 pm
Instructor: Joyce Hanna
Location: Li Ka Shing Learning Center, Rm 120

Willpower is a mind-body response, not a virtue that some people seem to have and others don?t. Understanding willpower will enable you to develop the ability to do what YOU WANT for yourself. Self-control is like a muscle and can be strengthened. You can learn the right habits, techniques and strategies, based on the science of self-change, that will work for you. With strengthened self-control, you can reach your weight goals, and make other lifelong changes.

Habits make up 40% of our daily routine and have an enormous impact on our wellbeing. You can train your brain to regulate impulses and avoid self-sabotage. You can learn to distract yourself from temptations. Once you get into the willpower groove, your brain will focus on what you want for yourself and you will find that you are struggling less.

Participants will gain useful tools to reshape habits, avoid temptation, deal with procrastination, and build willpower endurance. The good news is once your willpower becomes stronger in one area, it touches every area in your life.
