6 Tips To Run Smoother!

The so-called “peak-and-end rule” suggests that the most intense (peak) and final (end) moments of an experience disproportionately influence retrospective judgments (source). What this means is that there are basically two moments of an experience we remember when asked to judge how hard it was, the most intense peak and the end. Researcher Kahneman and colleagues experimented with lengthening the procedure of surgery to put more time between the peak intensity of the procedure and the end. People judge a workout largely based on how they felt at its peak (its most intense point) and at its end, rather than based on the total sum or average of every moment of the experience. For more information on the Peak-End Bias, I recommend this Khan Academy video.
