Abstract:

"Eat healthy. Exercise. Quit smoking. Cut down on drinking. Reduce stress. Changing unhealthy behaviors is easier said than done. If you're like most of us, you have already made repeated attempts to change your lifestyle and improve your well-being without lasting success. You may attribute those failures to things like lack of motivation or the "wrong genes." But it's more likely that you simply don't know how to change. In this groundbreaking book, James O. Prochaska, PhD, and Janice M. Prochaska, PhD, guide you through a six-stage process designed to help you assess your readiness to change, then tap the inner resources necessary to thrive physically, emotionally, and socially. Backed by countless research studies, the stages of change model, developed by James Prochaska in collaboration with Carlo DiClemente, PhD, has revolutionized the field of behavior change. Through interactive exercises, Changing to Thrive will help you progress through the stages of change and learn that you have the power within to thrive"--
