DESIGNING HABIT CHANGE
Learning the skills of habit change using small step goal setting will help you find your unique path to wellness. However small and insignificant your first steps might seem, the important thing is that you are doing it!
We use a five step habit change process.
Step 1. Gather knowledge. The first step is to better understand why well habits are important and how they can positively impact your life.
Step 2. Be Self Aware. The second step is to turn the magnifying glass onto yourself so you can reflect and better understand your own habits.
Step 3. Get Motivated. A process of inquiry can motivate you to go out and explore the path between where you are now and where you want to be.
Step 4. Explore Options. Once you are motivated to make changes, the next question is how. In this step you discover the many different ways you can do this.
Step 5. Well Step Goal. Finally, you turn your chosen option into a concrete goal. This step is where you design, write, track and find support. Creating a goal using the WELL STEP acronym increases the likelihood that change will happen.
