Abstract

Working towards and maintaining goals is closely tied to healthy aging, but aging researchers know little about how older adults work towards their meaningful goals on a daily basis. We conducted an internet-based micro-longitudinal study (100 days, n=105) to examine factors that may affect older adults’ abilities to self-regulate health goals over time with a focus on the role of visualization feedback on promoting their progress. Our findings suggest that (1) older adults found visualization feedback helpful in maintaining an awareness of their health goal progress, and (2) visualization feedback weakens the positive relationship between the previous day’s progress and today’s progress, helping older adults bounce back from a poor progress day
