Our model is inspired by Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Our Well Habit Mountain is divided into these five connected levels. When we gain an understanding on how different elements of ourselves are connected we can move towards greater well-being and self-fulfilment.
Body: Learn fundamental well habits for your body.
Safety: Learn how to feel safe by setting boundaries, finding support and managing stress.
Connect: Get connected with yourself, others and nature for a richer life.
Mind: Improve your habits of the mind – learn the power of a positive, focused and growth mind.
Shine: Live the life you want with creativity, purpose and passion.
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.
