There are a series of practical steps that you can take to build sustainable new habits which make it easier to be your best. Building helpful habits is a core component of developing mental resilience.

In order for the habit building process to be successful, it’s important to use the best insights from behavioural science.

Here are some insights from the ‘How to build more helpful habits’ Masterclass (this content is only available as part of the ‘Me Power® Resilience program’. To learn more click HERE). 

To supercharge the habit building process we use the Tougher Minds® Nine Action Factors model. These are based on the cutting-edge behavioural science we’ve just referred to.

Habit building factorsWe have created the Nine Action Factors model to help people achieve successful and sustainable change. There are more than 200 rules that underpin the model. They make it easier to support the desired changes in peoples’ behaviour which help individuals and organisations achieve their goals.

Here is a simple overview of the nine core areas showing how each is connected to what we refer to as the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop (a detailed breakdown of the mental factors and processes which underpin a habit):

1) Mindset – that’s connected to an individual’s belief that they can change and their willingness to try to build new habits.

2) External Triggers – the things surrounding us that trigger habits (they can be physical and/or digital). This is connected to the Trigger phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

3) Personal Knowledge and Skills – what you already know which is helpful. These are most strongly connected to the routine phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

4) Community Knowledge and Skills – what people around us know which is helpful. These are most strongly connected to the routine phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

5) Habit Factor – how large or significant is the change? That is most strongly connected to the A.P.E.® Incentive phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

6) Personal Motivation – what are the benefits of building the new habit? That is most strongly connected to the A.P.E.® Incentive phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

7) Social Influence – what are other people around us doing? That’s most strongly connected to the A.P.E.® Incentive phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

8) Rewards and Penalties – what are the rewards and penalties for building the new habit? These are most strongly connected to the A.P.E.® Incentive phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop

9) Brain State Optimisation  – is your brain well nourished and rested to make a change? That is most strongly connected to the Training phase of the T.R.A.I.T.® habit loop
