Research indicates that it takes 28 days to establish a new habit. By doing said habit consistently for 4 weeks, one’s targeted behavior will change. If that’s the case then why is it that every year millions of people create a new years resolution just to eventually discontinue the pursuit of eliminating said resolution one month later? Is the research flawed or are the new behaviors plans flawed? Enter this years new years resolution fad, changeology, changeology is the scientific study of behavior change, which indicates that individuals need additional months to successfully establish a new habit. Changeology claims to help individuals realize their goals and resolutions by following a 5-step process that ensures success, but the real question is if changeooology follows health behavior change principles or not and what research went into the 5 step process. I digress. Most people have some unhealthy vices, and with those vices come barriers to stopping those vices in addition to barriers, which may instigate or encourage unhealthy vices. By identifying those vices and identifying the barriers to those vices, one can then create a plan to properly eliminate said vices. Motivation is key to success. So does one need to invest in a changeology book or a new years resolution success book? Or does all one need is real motivation and determination to ward off a specific negative health behavior? Ok, so here’s the plan, identify a negative health behavior that you would like to eliminate, create a plan to eliminate it, implement said plan with determination, and see the plan to completion. Like the old saying goes, “Don’t talk about it, be about it!” Happy New Year from Chris Croley Fitness Chris Croley, MS, MS, CPT Owner of Chris Croley Fitness www.chriscroleyfitness.com [email protected]
