Study to test re­solve of your res­o­lu­tions

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

IT is that time of year again when peo­ple of­ten set New Year res­o­lu­tions.

Those aged 18 or older who have, or want to make, a res­o­lu­tion for 2019 are in­vited to take part in an on­line study.

ECU As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor Joanne Dick­son said past re­search had shown peo­ple’s res­o­lu­tions tended to “quickly fall by the way­side”.

“Our study aims to in­ves­ti­gate what helps peo­ple to stick to their res­o­lu­tions or not,” she said.

“You will be asked to list a New Year res­o­lu­tion you are com­mit­ted to for 2019 and to com­plete a se­ries of on­line ques­tion­naires across four time points.

“In the first sur­vey, you will be asked ques­tions about your res­o­lu­tion, per­son­al­ity and well­be­ing, which should take ap­prox­i­mately 20 min­utes.

“Each of the re­main­ing three ses­sions (two, four and eight weeks later) should take no more than five min­utes.”

Com­plete the sur­vey at be­fore Jan­uary 13.

Data col­lected will be con­fi­den­tial.
