In last week’s blog we looked at making preparations for change – a change in behaviour or habit – maybe something that will form part of a New Year’s Resolution.
This week I’m going to introduce you to a model for behaviour change that’s used in healthcare for people who need to overhaul their lifestyle in order to achieve better health.
It’s based on a formula that breaks down the steps we all take when change is needed. They are:
This model will help you to easily spot the stage where you tend to falter or fall back into old habits, and when you know where that hurdle is you can better prepare for it and ultimately be more successful at putting your new healthier or better habit in place.
The model is explained in more detail in The Resilience Hub – just log in and go to the Fuel section on the left side of your dashboard.
If you are planning a behaviour change in the next few weeks now is the perfect time to check this out and get your conscious and sub-conscious minds working on your behalf.
There is also a one page exercise sheet to help you see where you are in your journey to a new habit, and that’s free for everyone to download.
Hope this helps!
All the best,
