    to regret selecting activities that provide a less enjoyable experience when they are engaging in those activities The researchers conducted six experiments including exercising 3 visiting a museum and lab tasks designed to explore the motivational effects of two types of incentives those linked to the outcome of finishing a task such as improved health from working out and those linked to the experience itself such as having a fun or relaxing workout The studies found that when people were asked to evaluate what s important to them in the middle of an activity they valued the experience more than when they were asked about it outside of the activity For example those working out at the gym 3 valued having an enjoyable workout more than those who were surveyed before working out However people valued the outcome of the workout e g improved health similarly inside and outside the activity What people value when choosing might be different from what they value later on when pursuing these actions said Fishbach And if what people care about changes they may choose activities that they fail to follow through on or that they regret pursuing In one experiment researchers tested whether people could accurately predict how persistence would be affected by boring or fun tasks and lower or higher pay Participants were assigned to evaluate sections of a computer manual or a joke book and told they would receive a bonus of either five or 10 cents for each completed section One group of participants predicted how long they would stick with their tasks and expected that higher pay would be the main driver Ultimately the researchers didn t have this group perform any tasks but another group of participants did The only factor that increased this group s time spent

  • Don’t break the bank: Bipolar & Overspending | bpHope - bp Magazine Community
    friends who are willing to help me TRUST BUT VERIFY During two manic episodes marked by hypersexuality Tom K of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania opened credit card accounts and blew tens of thousands of dollars Some of the money went to hotel rooms some to furnishing an apartment he rented Now reconciled with his wife Mona he leaves all money decisions to her It s one way to rebuild the trust that was tested by his manic behavior Tom doesn t spend a dollar even on gas without checking in His one credit card typically lives in a block of ice in the freezer a built in time delay so he can reconsider before using it Mona goes online daily to monitor their bank account transactions Tom s second manic spree in 2004 was followed by a depressive crash that kept him out of work for a month As a kind of silver lining he received an accurate diagnosis of bipolar and hasn t slipped into full mania since then Yet the debts he ran up compounded by loss of income and preexisting financial complications left the family in a precarious situation They used credit cards and refinanced their house to get by Ultimately they owed 175 000 and declared bankruptcy in 2009 Tom 43 now works 60 to 80 hours a week as a paramedic to keep up with bills and college loan payments Mona also found a part time job as a school librarian which allows her to be home when their two kids are She recommends that spouses or partners of someone with bipolar have a plan to support themselves if necessary Plan for the worst expect the best says Mona 40 That is how I sleep at night knowing I could do it all if I had to To keep down expenses the family cut back on extras such as premium cable and pricier cell phone plans They fund their children s athletic activities which require some travel to competitions but very little goes to just for fun pursuits We rarely go out to dinner Mona says I don t think we ve ever been on a family vacation She accepts the reality as part of her marriage saying I really do believe in sickness and in health I think too many people go into marriage expecting it to be rainbows unicorns and roses Tom and I really have a good relationship when he s not manic Says Tom If it wasn t for her I d probably be out on the street or dead by now Obviously I couldn t be more grateful OUNCE OF PREVENTION Once a person is in the throes of a fullblown manic episode sometimes the only way to prevent serious financial damage is hospitalization However there are money management strategies like Tia Roberts hold on her bank accounts that limit the opportunity to overspend Sarah Freeman 52 knows how important such protections can be In 2004 unrecognized bipolar turned her affluent life upside down and drained her savings I went through over 100 000 in under a year says Freeman At the time it seemed reasonable In addition to compulsive shopping and grandiose spending Freeman impulsively left her husband and legal career in Australia moved to the United States and began an expensive degree program in an unrelated field Getting her diagnosis helped Freeman come to terms with the irrational decisions that splintered her comfortable existence I had been so full of shame and regret it was easier now to understand my behavior and I actually preferred the idea that I was mad and not bad she writes on her website Bipolar Lives Freeman mastered the tools to stay in balance and was able to re establish herself in a well paying job in Tallahassee Florida Committed to her treatment plan she hasn t had a serious mood episode in the eight years since she was diagnosed Even so she has a written contract promising she ll turn over her financial affairs to her fiancé complete with power of attorney if she experiences a serious mood shift The couple also tracks their spending and savings through a money management website that pulls in and analyzes their bank and credit card transactions Removing that opportunity for secrecy is a critical piece says Freeman MAKING CHANGES Judy Sturm the Chicago woman who almost owned three condos was generally able to ride out the aftermath of her manic money blowouts The toll on her most precious relationship with her daughter Marina was harder to ignore Judy would pay down her debts when she was well even while on disability for more than a year She was released from those condo contracts because the developer s wife has bipolar and he understood Judy s situation And Marina often stepped in to try to fix things When the younger woman spotted evidence of a spree such as shopping bags of expensive clothes in her usually frugal mother s home or car she d return the purchases At times she covered some of Judy s bills knowing her mother would recompense her later And on occasion to stop the bleeding I d cancel her credit cards Marina recalls Over time however the cycle of outof control behavior pushed their relationship to the breaking point Marina told her mother the stress was getting to be too much and she would break their ties if something didn t change During a hospitalization in 2001 Judy made a commitment to herself and her daughter to avoid relapse She worked closely with her doctor to find medication she would stick with and benefited greatly from support groups Now her finances are stable and she and Marina have a good relationship For me personally it was important to finally accept the diagnosis accept the treatment accept responsibility that recovery was in my hands says Judy who is president of Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Chicago If you don t accept responsibility then
