Description :

Emerging adults undergo life transitions such as entering the workforce and higher education, or becoming a parent, that present
changes in the physical and social environment. Such changes in the environment present resource constraints that may lead to goal
interference, i.e., progressing in one goal at the expense of another due to time or energy limitations. Goal interference and
facilitation is often studied between concrete actions (e.g. preparing a healthy meal and driving children to leisure activities),
whereas healthy lifestyles can also facilitate or interfere with personal values (value of being a caring parent). Using the
ecological momentary assessment (EMA) method, this study aims to investigate vertical goal facilitation and interference between health
goals (physical activity and diet) and personal values among the emerging adult population (18-30 years old) as they navigate
social role transitions.
