Training: Willpower!

A lot of students might recognize it; procrastination. When you really want to study, but you can’t seem to set yourself to it. When you feel like you have so much to do but you can’t get it done. Sometimes your to-do list is so overwhelming that it can lead to stress and even a burnout.
To help you prevent this, TRAIN is organizing the workshop ‘Willpower!’. This training will be about setting priorities (what do you want to do?) and about motivation (how do I get it done?).
Having willpower is something you can learn! Good news for anyone who would like to have more willpower. Whether it is your studies, sports or any personal goals, with more willpower you can achieve more. Having more willpower can help you achieve goals that are important to you!
The workshop Willpower! will give you an introduction to the psychology of willpower. You will learn what it is, how it works and how to deal with pitfalls. We discuss pitfalls, such as the so-called ‘what the hell effect’, the ‘halo effect’ and the ‘restraint bias’.
In addition, we will discuss strategies to develop your willpower. You will learn how to increase your energy, how to prevent willpower 'leaks' and learn strategies to be more effective at achieving your goals. So, do you want more willpower for your study, less Facebooking, workout more often, eat healthier or something else? Then you are most welcome!
This training is given by professional trainer Imre Végh from Project Wisdom.
