Self-compassion and Commitment to Exercise in Midlife and Older Adults

William Tierney from the University of Adelaide is researching the role of self-compassion in the relationship between commitment to exercise, attitudes to ageing, and responses to barriers in midlife and older adults. Results could help to determine the most effective ways to encourage engagement and commitment to exercise, and in turn, improve the health and functional capacity of midlife and older adults.

The study may be relevant to you if you are:

  • Aged 40 years or older;
  • And take part in some form of exercise, either aerobic (e.g., exercise that increase your heart rate such as running) or resistance (e.g., weight training).

If you would like to participate more information about the survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/uoahonoursthesis.

The online questionnaire is expected to take approximately 20 minutes of your time.
