Is It the Right Time for a Fresh Start?

first_imgScientific American:Around this time of year, I tend to look back at the list of commitments I made in early January: I will exercise more often, spend more time with family, do a better job balancing my personal and professional lives, leave my laptop home when we go on vacation, and so on. And yet, only two months into the new year, I find I am not doing such a good job. And I am sure I am not alone. On January 1, people around the globe commit with vigor to all sorts of virtuous goals, from losing weight to being a more understanding boss or partner to eating more healthfully to saving more money. And, before too long, most of us find we’re back where we started.Setting virtuous goals at the beginning of the year can be quite effective, recent research tells us, since the first day of the year is a temporal landmark. Temporal landmarks signal the start of a new, distinct time period — making us feel we can start from a clean slate. They highlight a contrast between current and future goals (which are often different!) and can thus be a relatively simple way to motivate yourself to accomplish your virtuous goals. So, here is the good news: If you feel like you already failed on your resolutions like me, you do not need to wait till December 31 to start fresh. You simply need to identify a good temporal landmark, and give it another shot.Read the whole story: Scientific American More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Joint GAA/GPA/ESRI research project aims to support welfare of inter-county players

first_imgThe commissioned research gives players the opportunity to engage in confidence with an independent research project. The evidence provided from the research will then be used by the joint working group to inform the design of measures aimed at assisting inter-county players to achieve more balance between their playing, personal and professional lives.All 1,962 players from the 2016 inter-county championship panels will be contacted to participate in the research. For the first time, players will have the opportunity to portray the demands of senior inter-county football and hurling, and give their views on how best to support player welfare.The project will commence immediately and the research findings will be published in December 2017. In addition to examining the demands of inter-county football and hurling, this research will also provide the first profile of senior inter-county footballers and hurlers against which future generations of players can be compared with.GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghail said: “I welcome the announcement of this initiative. A lot has been said and written about the well documented challenges associated with playing our games at the highest levels and the commitment involved.“Involvement in our games at inter-county level should not come to the detriment of the personal development of our players and we have committed to working with the GPA to establish a clear view of the situation using the expertise of the ESRI.“I look forward to their findings and to working to improve a crucial area of player welfare.”GPA Chairman Seamus Hickey added: “The establishment of a joint working group between the GPA and GAA to review the challenge of life style balance for inter county players was an important agreed objective in the new GAA/GPA Recognition Protocol.“This research study will be a vital first step in establishing a comprehensive picture of all the issues that impact on players life style balance.“The deliberations of the joint working group, informed by this research study, should lead to concrete recommendations that can help address the challenges faced by players both on and off the pitch.”ESRI Director Alan Barrett said: “The Institute is delighted to have the opportunity to contribute its research expertise to this important project. Gaelic games play a central role in Irish society. Our engagement with the GAA and the GPA is an exciting new route through which we aim to fulfil our broad remit of developing insights into various aspects of life in Ireland.”print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email The new agreement, unveiled last July, committed to establish a joint working group comprised of players, administrators and others to draft proposals with the intention of assisting amateur inter-county players to better manage their personal and professional lives.  This research work by the ESRI is an important first step in that process. As part of the new working arrangements between the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and the Gaelic Players Association (GPA), the two organisations have commissioned the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) to examine the challenge of life style balance in the lives of senior inter-county players.last_img read more
