Stop deep breathing and counting to 10 — we've found the answer!
Ever had one of those moments — when you know you should stop, take a breathe and count to ten ... but before you know it, you’ve had a meltdown moment!
The good news is you’re not alone — everyone one of us have a degree behaviour issues — and with life getting busier, more stressful and more complex, most parents, businesswomen, and people from all walks of life are finding themselves in the ‘bad behaviour pattern vortex’ more often than we would like to admit! There’s no doubt some days we all see 'red' with a capital R, but how do some people manage to handle those melt-down moments better than others?
In a new book written by behaviour specialist Tan Curtis called Challenging Change Behaviour Strategies for Life, you can learn to understand what makes you tick and how by changing your behaviour patterns, you can change your life. The author says behaviour can be defined as every action we do, every word we say and every thought we think while lack of behaviour is anything we don’t do, don’t say or don’t think.
To successfully change unwanted behaviour, first we must learn to understand why certain behaviours are being used! This easy to read book will take the reader on a personal journey to discover why behaviours are used and then how to create personalised strategies that will improve the outcomes in one’s life.
Challenging Change Behaviour Strategies for Life, provides a number of behaviour strategies that can be adapted for personal use, or for the reader’s use with understanding other people who they are supporting with behaviour change. Filled with easy to understand examples — based on real life — of how people have changed their own behaviour; the strategies, templates and useful tools can be used multiple times and in every day situations.
Tan says before one tries to change their own behaviour or influence the behaviour of someone else, one must identify the reasons why they are behaving in a particular way.
“Once we are able to clearly see and understand our behaviour we can then design and develop strategies to bring about long-term behavioural change,” Tan says.
"This change will lead to improvement in our overall quality of life and thus a brighter, more fulfilling and happier future for ourselves and for those we share our life with."
