Nudging and MS – a winning formula to help motivate you to exercise?

Blog post from Henriette

We are sure many people reading this will remember Henriette who until last year was a physiotherapist at the Centre for 10 years. 

She may be back in her native Denmark but she still does what she can to support people with MS and has put together an excellent blog called MS Ideas and Exercise

Her newest blog is called Nudging and MS – a winning formula?

    First things first, what is nudging? It is not having someone there to prod you with their elbow the entire time but the concept is the same. It is to help motivate you to do something; in this case, exercise. 

    Henriette explains:

    Nudging is the use of certain types of interventions with the goal to create changes in behaviour subconsciously. Nudging can help us make choices or take certain actions without us having to consciously be aware of it and without use of punishment. We are not just rational people – we are also influenced by psychological, social and physical factors. For instance like in the use of small plates versus big plates and stickers in the shape of foot prints or targets.’
