Self-nudging: make better choices

student met agenda

Do you ever intent to study hard, only to find out at the end of the day that you've been doing all sorts of things except working on your studies?

You're not the only one. Many people rely on their willpower when they have to do something they don't always feel like doing. But willpower is a bad advisor. It's far better to "nudge" yourself, and set up your environment in such a way that you do what you intended to do.

Denise de Ridder is a professor of psychology at Utrecht University. In this online lecture she explains what self-nudging is and how you can use it when you are tempted to put your study books aside.
