Emotions can motivate behavior change to a more sustainable lifestyle

The news on extreme weather due to climate change and other challenges related to the health of our planet is constantly increasing. This shows that we urgently need to change our behavior and live more environmentally friendly. To inspire people to live more environmentally friendly, research has mostly focused on cognitive factors such as changing beliefs, values, and perceptions. But also emotions should be taken into account. Emotions are conscious or unconscious feelings that can be caused by triggers such as a picture and motivate us to perform certain actions and make decisions. When emotions related to living sustainably are understood, they can be used to motivate behavior change in addition to conscious, cognitive factors. This can be done for example by linking emotions to - behavioral outcomes - personal circumstances - effective interventions Learn more about how emotions can be used to inspire environmentally friendly behavior:
