Weighing up the Ingredients of Behaviour Change [INFOGRAPHIC]

We’ve all been in the situation – we know that one or more of our behaviours are having a negative effect on our lives, but there just isn’t enough of a counter argument to warrant a change.  “Why not eat another bacon sandwich, I’m joining a gym next week”… or “just another cigarette, I’ve had a stressful day today”.
