Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? How’s it going?

Changing behaviour, especially if it’s become habitual, can be hard. There’s loads of research about how people change their habits and the stages we go through to make changes.

I really like the behaviour change model which has been used here, by the Royal College of Nursing. Although they’re talking about change for health, it could be referring to anything: getting the boiler serviced, finding a new job, achieving an athletic goal.

If you’re feeling a bit stuck, especially if you’re contemplating change or are in danger of a relapse, get in touch; we can work together to unstick you!
