It's the Journey That Matters: the Effects of Feelings of Movement Toward a Goal on Reward Value

The present research focuses on a novel aspect of goal pursuit: feelings arising from movement towards the goal. We show that people get pleasure from a sense of moving forward, and the positive feelings evoked from movement are attributed to the reward associated with goal attainment, enhancing its value.
