4 Spring Courses for Self-Discovery
It’s a new year and a new opportunity to hit the refresh button. Consider these four spring courses to help you on the path to self-exploration and improvement.
Commit to Your Goals
Setting a goal is easy, but staying committed to that goal is where the real challenge lies. The spring course Motivation examines various psychological theories about the internal forces that drive us toward action. The insights gained in this class just might help you stick to those new year's resolutions.
The Meaning of Life
In debates on health, sleep remains both mysterious and controversial. For a behavioral state that occupies one-third of our lives, the function remains elusive. In Sleep and Mental Health, you explore the physiology and behavioral neuroscience of sleep. Then choose a topic to research that relates to the effects of sleep on mental health.
Yes, You Should Exercise
We can’t avoid the universal truth: we can all benefit from adding a little more exercise to our routine. The Science of Physical Activity Applied to Health and Well-Being offers an in-depth analysis of the health benefits of exercise. You also learn how to incorporate physical activity into your own life and in the lives of those around you.
Look for Meaning
Develop your own philosophical lens by studying the unexpected: comic book narratives. In Power and Responsibility: Doing Philosophy with Superheroes, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of metaphysics, moral relativism, and other core areas of philosophy.
