Hello everyone! I am going to be writing a series of posts that deal with the Stages of Change (SOC) model in regard to making decisions about health and wellness. I know, that sounds terribly boring and potentially painful. Well, fear not my faithful followers! I plan to write about this idea from the perspective a person needing to make a change and in the style of journal entries. It should be much more entertaining than an academic examination of the SOC.
I want to do this series because making change is difficult, and it is important for those needing to make change to understand that it is a process that involves learning how to make the change, not just deciding what needs to be changed. I am hoping that this series will help my readers understand where on the path they fall and what it is going to take to get them to move from one stage to the next. Please leave comments, ask questions, and make suggestions throughout this series. My character has a lot of work to do and will need support, motivation, and accountability to make it through!
I look forward to seeing how this exercise unfolds and hearing what everyone thinks.
Here’s to making healthful changes!
