Personal Behavior Change Plan

[WLOs: 4, 5] [CLOs: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

For your Final Project, you are to develop a personal behavioral change plan. After completing the assessments throughout the course, you should have a good idea of your wellness strengths and your weaknesses. Choose one dimension of wellness that you would like to change. (The dimension should be clearly stated. For example, state “physical dimension” instead of “exercise”).

Discuss each of the following areas in your plan:

  • Identify the wellness dimension you want to improve. Explain why you chose this dimension. In your response, describe your previous assessments and examine at least three lifestyle factors (diet, exercise, substance use, etc.) responsible for low assessment results in the dimension of wellness you chose to improve.
  • Compare your current behaviors to the ideal behaviors for each of the lifestyle factors that you identified. For example, if you selected stress as a lifestyle factor that contributes to your low assessment of emotional wellness, then compare your current stress-related behaviors (fighting with family, eating sweets, watching TV, drinking alcohol, etc.) to ideal stress management behaviors (appropriate conflict-resolution, meditation, daily exercise, massage, deep breathing, etc.). Select a minimum of one current behavior and one ideal behavior for each of the three lifestyle factors that you identified.
  • Describe the health risks and diseases associated with your current behaviors. Explain how your current behaviors would lead to these negative consequences if left unchanged.
  • Review the Stages of Change (Transtheoretical model) in Chapter 1 of your course textbook. Explain this model and discuss your readiness to change. Include which stage of change you are in currently and why you feel this way.
  • Imagine that you were ready to plan for change, and identify three behaviors you could adopt to decrease your health risk and improve your specified dimension of wellness. Use the previous information to help with your selection.
  • Review the supplemental material on the social cognitive theory, theory of planned behavior, health belief model, and Transtheoretical model provided in Week 1. Using these theories and models, discuss how each one may be able to predict your success in making this change. In your reply, explain the use of models and theories in health and wellness.
  • Describe three barriers (one barrier per behavior change) that may prevent you from making these changes. Barriers to behavior change are discussed in Chapter 1 of the course text.
  • Discuss one way to overcome each of your barriers.
  • Refer to the development of SMART goals in Chapter 1 of your text and develop three of your own SMART goals. Be sure to include all the parts of a SMART goal (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time Frame) for each goal set. As you discuss these in your assignment, explain your objectives and why you chose these goals.
  • Finally, develop a wellness philosophy based on your own values and beliefs and from what you have learned in this class.

Create a PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of 8 slides (excluding title and reference slides). Within the presentation, include detailed speaker notes for each slide. See the How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation (Links to an external site.) resource for additional guidance. Your behavioral change plan should use a minimum of four scholarly sources in addition to the course text, cited in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

The Final Project

  • Must be 8 to 10 double-spaced slides in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style (Links to an external site.) as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.).
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • Must begin with an introduction that has a succinct thesis statement.
  • Must address the topic of the presentation with critical thought.
  • Must use at least four scholarly sources in addition to the course text.
    • The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
    • To assist you in completing the library research required for this assignment, view the How Do I Begin? (Links to an external site.) tutorial, which provides an overview of conducting searches in the library, generating keywords, and understanding your assignment prompt.
  • Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
