1/ Is willpower myth or muscle? Using eating & #dieting as an example, let’s discuss the science behind #willpower, when willpower fails, and what we can learn from all of this to help us break bad #habits. A long thread, but follow along to learn why willpower is really a myth.
2/ If you're a #primarycare provider trying to help patients lose weight, a #nutritionist trying to get someone to stick to a healthy #diet, or simply trying to eat better yourself: Do you ever feel frustrated, helpless or like a failure in changing #habits?
3/ Why is habit change so hard? Have we not come up with the perfect strategy? Do we simply need more #willpower (or a kick in the pants)?

For years you’ve been told that willpower is the 🔑 to breaking bad habits… but what if I told you that science says otherwise?

Good morning from a UK with slightly less dull weather! I want to discuss two topics which are often confused & misunderstood, but first I wanted to clarify a few things from yesterday's threads #earthquake #Stress #faults 1/n
Referring back to the block diagram for dip-slip faults from yesterday, @CriticalStress_ noted that the stress arrows at the top were wrong. All faults have a confining (inward) compressional stress, but stresses from other directions can be larger 2/n
This diagram from @SEELeeds shows that in the example block diagram I gave the smallest stress (sigma-3, min) is inward perpendicular to the fault. The primary stress - the largest amount of force acting on the rock to produce a normal fault - is vertical: GRAVITY! 3/n
