Healthy Lifestyle Worksheet
What is the theory behind the Healthy Lifestyle Worksheet?
A healthy lifestyle incorporates effective habits that contribute to both a healthier mind and healthier body. It is crucial to teach individuals seeking therapy to always prioritise self-care as a way to cope better with their issues. Behavioural interventions can be used to help individuals give up bad habits and adopt healthier ones.
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet will help clients reflect on their current healthy and unhealthy habits. It will prompt them to list unhealthy habits that have been detrimental for their physical and mental health while also writing down how they can begin to change those habits into healthier ones. It will also prompt them to really think about how their mind and body are affected by their habits.
How to use the worksheet?
Instruct the client to first list down unhealthy habits that they know have become a part of their life and how they know they are bad for their mind and body. Then ask them to write down what they can start doing to replace those unhealthy habits with healthier ones and how this change can positively affect their mind and body.
