CONCEPT 2 : Making Lifestyle Changes Many adults want to make lifestyle changes but find changes hard to make. Practicing one healthy lifestyle does not mean you will practice another, though adopting one healthy behavior often leads to adoption of another. People do not make lifestyle changes overnight. Rather, people progress forward and backward through several stages of change. Once maintenance is attained, relapse is less likely to occur. Factors that Promote Lifestyle Change There are many factors associated with achieving advanced stages of healthy behavior. Personal factors affect health behaviors but are often out of your personal control. Predisposing factors are important in getting you started with the process of change. Enabling factors are important in moving you from the beginning stages of change to action and maintenance. Reinforcing factors are important in adhering to life style changes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
