The impact of prospective thinking on adherence to physical exercise

 

Humans have the ability to mentally project themselves into future events (prospective thinking) to promote the implementation of health-oriented behaviors, such as physical activity. Nevertheless, it is currently unclear on how prospective thinking unfolds while generating future predictions about one’s own bodily states, such as when anticipating the effort and/or enjoyment intensity that will be induced by a forthcoming physical exercise session. In this talk, I will present the preliminary findings of a neuroimaging project that aim at examining how these bodily-oriented prospective thinking processes evolve throughout the completion of a “start-to-run” program.
