Happy New Year from all of us at Eurospan!

The start of another year traditionally gives us an opportunity to reflect on the past year, and to make New Year’s resolutions for what we want to do differently in the year ahead.

Common resolutions are to eat healthily, exercise, quit smoking, cut down on drinking, or reduce stress. Yet changing our behaviours is difficult; despite our best intentions, few of us achieve our resolutions.

A way to break unhealthy habits and to commit to making a change is shown in Changing to Thrive from Hazelden Publishing. It uses a six-stage process is based on the stages of change model, developed by James Prochaska in collaboration with Carlo DiClement, which has revolutionized the field of behaviour change. It assesses your readiness to change and then shows how to progress through stages of the change you want to make, using interactive exercises and checklists.
