It’s incredibly important that people listening to The Anxiety Guy Podcast episode #2 understand that behaviour change does not happen in one step. Rather, people tend to progress through different stages on their way to successful change. Also, each of us progresses through the stages at our own rate.
So expecting behaviour change by simply telling someone, for example, who is still in the “pre-contemplation” stage that he or she must go to a certain number of AA meetings in a certain time period is rather naive (and perhaps counterproductive) because they are not ready to change.
Each person must decide for him or herself when a stage is completed and when it is time to move on to the next stage. Moreover, this decision must come from the inside – stable, long-term change cannot be externally imposed.
In each of the stages, a person has to grapple with a different set of issues and tasks that relate to changing behaviour.
In this episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I will be sharing with you:
- The ways you can go from one stage of transformational change to the next quickly
- Why it’s important not to get stuck in one stage for too long
- How to relate these changes to your health anxiety condition
