free-flowing” said Selin Malkoc assistant professor at The Ohio State University in the US (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News Scheduling a leisure activity like seeing a movie or taking a coffee break can lead people to actually enjoy the event less than if the same activities were unplanned a new study has found However roughly planning an event but not giving a specific time can lead to similar levels of enjoyment as unplanned events researchers found “People associate schedules with work We want our leisure time to be free-flowing” said Selin Malkoc assistant professor at The Ohio State University in the US “Time is supposed to fly when you are having fun Anything that limits and constrains our leisure chips away at the enjoyment” said Malkoc Watch What Else Is Making News Malkoc and Gabriela Tonietto a doctoral student at Washington University in the US analysed 13 separate studies that looked at how scheduling leisure activities affects the way we think about and experience them In one study college students were given a calendar filled with classes and extracurricular activities and asked to imagine that this was their actual schedule for the week Half of the participants were then asked to make plans to get frozen yogurt with a friend two days in advance and add the activity to their calendar The other half imagined running into a friend and deciding to get frozen yogurt immediately Results showed that those who scheduled getting frozen yogurt with their friend rated the activity as feeling more like a “commitment” and “chore” than those who imagined the impromptu get-together “Scheduling our fun activities leads them to take on qualities of work” Malkoc said The effect is not just for hypothetical activities In an online study the researchers had people select an entertaining YouTube video to watch The catch was that some got to watch their chosen video immediately Others chose a specific date and time to watch the video and put in on their calendar Results showed that those who watched the scheduled video enjoyed it less than those who watched it immediately While people seem to get less enjoyment out of precisely scheduled activities they do not seem to mind if they are more roughly scheduled In another study the researchers set up a stand on a college campus where they gave out free coffee and cookies for students studying for finals Before setting up the stand they handed out tickets for students to pick up their coffee and cookies either at a specific time or during a two-hour window As they were enjoying their treat the students filled out a short survey The results showed that those who had a specifically scheduled break enjoyed their time off less than did those who only roughly scheduled the break “If you schedule leisure activities only roughly the negative effects of scheduling disappear” Malkoc said One study showed that even just setting a starting time for a fun activity is enough to make it less enjoyable

it’s better to tell them what to eat than what not to says a new study Related News In order to make your loved one take up a healthier diet it’s better to tell them what to eat than what not to says a new study A new Cornell discovery suggests that telling your child to eat an apple so they stay healthy will work better than telling them not to eat the cookie because it will make them fat In short stressing the benefits of eating healthy foods is more effective than warning against the harms of eating unhealthy foods The researchers analyzed 43 published international studies that involved either negative or positive nutrition messages They found that while negative messages tended to work best with experts – like dietitians and physicians -who were highly involved and knowledgeable in the area most people who did not know a lot about nutrition would rather be told what they should eat and why it is good for them In conclusion the researchers recommend: when designing public health messaging campaigns focus on positive consequences of target healthy behaviors rather than focusing on the negative consequences This way the message is more likely to be effective among the non-expert general public instead of only appealing to health and nutrition professionals Lead author Brian Wansink PhD at Cornell said that for parents it’s better to focus on the benefits of broccoli and not the harms of hamburgers The findings are published in Nutrition Reviews For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: IANS | New York

University) Related News Astronomers have discovered that a Sun-like star lurking around 350 light-years away consumed the rocky equivalent of 15 Earths Dubbed Kronos after the child-eating Titan of Greek mythology the star is the clearest and most dramatic case yet of a Sun-like star consuming its own planets said Semyeong Oh astrophysicist at Princeton University in New Jersey and lead author of the study “Even if our Sun ate the entire inner solar system it wouldn’t come close to the anomaly we see in this star” study co-author David Hogg from the Flatiron Institute in New York added The research did not begin as a hunt for a planet-eater Oh was analysing a catalog of new star data collected by the European Space Agency’s Gaia spacecraft for pairs of stars with similar speeds and trajectories Such duos are typically twin stars that formed close together from the same ingredients The analysis ultimately led to the identification of Kronos and its lesser known brother Krios Their official designations are HD 240430 and HD 240429 and they are both about 350 light years from Earth The keys to the discovery were first confirming that the widely separated pair are in fact a binary pair and secondly observing Kronos’ strikingly unusual chemical abundance pattern Oh explained in a statement released by the Princeton University Other co-moving star pairs have had different chemistries Oh explained but none as dramatic as Kronos and Krios Most stars that are as metal-rich as Kronos “have all the other elements enhanced at a similar level” she said “whereas Kronos has volatile elements suppressed which makes it really weird in the general context of stellar abundance patterns” In other words Kronos had an unusually high level of rock-forming minerals including magnesium aluminium silicon iron chromium and yttrium without an equally high level of volatile compounds — those that are most often found in gas form like oxygen carbon nitrogen and potassium the
