Sustainable Behavior Change with Michelle Segar

Sustainable Behavior Change with Michelle Segar

Why do some people exercise through stressful times and others stop? Why does one mom put her self-care at the top of the priority list while another puts everyone’s else needs first? For a quarter of a century, Michelle Segar has tried to crack the code on why some people lose motivation for healthy habits, and others don't. She’s not interested in helping people change their behavior. No, she wants to help people sustain health-oriented behaviors. In part 3 of our behavior series, we get into the psychology and science of motivation. Michelle Segar, Ph.D., MPH is a behavioral sustainability scientist and author of No Sweat! How the Simple Science of Motivation Can Bring You a Lifetime of Fitness. She is Director of the Sport, Health, and Activity Research and Policy Center (SHARP) at the University of Michigan. Michelle has devoted her career to creating sustainable behavior change and she is a recognized pioneer in the field. For the last 25 years, she has been conducting research and coaching individuals in her three-part system. Based on her extensive research, coaching, and personal experience, Michelle shares the secret ingredients for making healthy behaviors lasting.
