Episode 12 - Action Planning

Multiple goal strategies - including the development of Process, Performance, and Outcome goals - positively influence the actions people take. Moreover, goals consistent with core beliefs and values give action purpose and meaning. The strength of this planning is the activation of a here and now focus needed to initiate and maintain physical activity/health behavior change.
