Avoiding The Self-Comparison Trap & Understanding The Hedonic Treadmill
Listen now
We've all heard the advice around comparison to others and why, in most cases, it's the thief of joy but there's another type of comparison we need to be aware of as health and nutrition coaches and that is self-comparison. In this episode, I want to explain the psychological concept of the hedonic treadmill and why moving the goalpost further and further away leads to near celebrating progress or milestones. We need to be able to measure backwards and this will be a great reminder for your clients. Topics include:   - Comparison and The Hedonic Treadmill - The Concept of Hedonic Adaptation - Attention - Setting Subgoals - Out To Eat Example - Dynamic Activities vs Circumstantial Changes - Novel Experiences - Measuring Yourself Against The Ideal - Please Share, Rate, and Review ----------  Subscribe to My Youtube Channel:  https://youtube.com/@sammillerscience?si=s1jcR6Im4GDHbw_1 ----------  My Live Program for Coaches: The Functional Nutrition and Metabolism Specialization  www.metabolismschool.com ----------     [Free] Metabolism School 101: The Video Series http://www.metabolismschool.com/metabolism-101     ----------     Grab a Copy of My New Book - Metabolism Made Simple     ----------   Stay Connected:     Instagram: @sammillerscience     Youtube: SamMillerScience     Facebook: The Nutrition Coaching Collaborative Community     TikTok: @sammillerscience       ---------- “This Podcast is for general informational purposes only and does not constitute the practice of medicine, nursing or other professional health care services, including the giving of medical advice, and no doctor/patient relationship is formed.
