Mindovermatter

Description: Doing something you don't want to do requires plenty of focus and mental energy, whether it's quitting smoking, studying for an exam or doing a maths problem. In this interview psychologists Dr Martin Hagger from The University of Nottingham and Dr Nikos Chatzisarantis from the University of Plymouth, explain why ego-energy is so crucial, and why motivation could work against you.
