In this episode, I talk to Octavia H. Zahrt one of the authors behind the newly published study about perceived physical activity and mortality. The new study from Stanford shows that people that had negative thoughts about their own physical activity had 71% greater risk of dying earlier.
We talk about:
- You are what you think you are
- Perception of stress
- Perceived physical activity and mortality
- How do social comparison and public health guidelines shape people’s physical activity
- How wearable fitness trackers can shape users’ mindsets
