Please select a specific unhealthy behavior you would like to change. Provide a bit of background about the behavior using references from the text (you may need to look up the behavior in the text appendix and read ahead about the behavior). Next, provide a brief definition of two theories from the list below:
Health Belief Model
Theory of Planned Behavior
Health Action Process Approach
Use this theory info to explain your behavior and inform your plan to change the behavior. Next, write about your plan to change this behavior, replacement activities, and how you will record your behaviors. There are numerous behavior modification tally sheets on the Internet, feel free to conduct a web search for behavior modification tally sheets and use an available sheet to record your behaviors and turn in as an attachment to your assignment, or feel free to make your own tally sheet with the categories indicated in the next paragraph.
Next, implement the plan for two days and report about how it is going. Please include information about the following areas in your paper:
Specific behavioral goals
Knowledge of when the behavior is most (or least) likely to occur
Concrete plans to change the behavior
Self-monitoring of the behavior
Periodic evaluation of whether the plan is working
Stick with the plan even after you turn in this assignment as you will be asked to provide an update on your adherence and behavior modification project in your final Signature Assignment, due in Week 8. Please include four scholarly resources in the paper. Use in-text citations for the resources in the paper and then include a reference page at the end of the assignment.
Length: 5-7 pages
