1. Target Behaviour Change

a) The change which I want to do in my life is stop using social network and want to sleep properly because I am too addicted to it and sometimes spend 2-3hrs on my phone due to which I can’t sleep at time.

b)

1) If my body will have enough sleep then in the morning I will feel more active and energetic.

2) Moreover, it prevents for many diseases like hypertension (stress and anxiety).

3) Improves mental health.

4) Improves concentration and productivity.

3. Analysis

a) Using a lot of social network specially Facebook, snapchat, Instagram, YouTube and WhatsApp.

b) Put electronic devices away from my eyes so that I can avoid using it.

c) when a person does something good them that person should be rewarded and if he did something wrong or cant achieve what he want then we should encourage and support that person.

d) I think access to health services will support me in making this change because then I will spend my free time in doing health related activities.

e) The one limitation which I suffered while creating the action plan was to visualization like it was hard to visualize our self.

f) The first thing which I noticed in my observation was that I was not having proper sleep like some days I sleep more while other days I sleep less so it was not balanced and the second thing was that most the time I spend at college.

4. SMART Goals

a) Long Term Goal

      I commit that I will sleep for at least 8hrs per night by November 5,2018.

b) Short Term Goals

1) I will keep all the electronic devices away from me by 8:30pm by October 1, 2018.

2) I will stop having coffee and other products which contain caffeine after 4:30pm by October 15, 2018.

3) I will go to my bed by 9:00 – 9:30pm and read a story books by October 28, 2018.

5. Action Plan

Shaping

  • So, my first step will be that I will start keeping my cellphone away from me by 7pm from today.
  • Next day I will see how it works if it works good for me then I will make it as habit and after few days I will stop having coffee in the evening.
  • And what I commit I will be firm on it and will not break any decision which I made for this behaviour change.

Visualizing

  • I will set my mind that every electronic device will be shut off by the evening and will visualize that I am doing better or not.
  • When I start to change this behaviour the I will see my image and after adopting the change then I will see my image that now where I am standing.

Controlling the Situation

  • In the surrounding environment I will see and have company with that friend who is away from the social network and live balanced life.
  • I will make my will power more stronger to sustain on my words.

Modeling

  • I want to change my seeping pattern because of the only one person that’s my friend Rishabh and I ask him some of the tips how can I start and how it will affect.
  • I have seen that took proper sleep for 8-9hrs and he never touch any of his electronic appliance when he is at home.

Changing Self-talks

  • I will stop thinking about the social media which always influence me to use my phone.
  • Always think on positive side of the change neglecting the negative side, this will help to stop our negative thoughts.

Rewards

  • If my effort is really working well then, I will provide some positive feedbacks.
  • I will buy some new story books and magazines which I can read at night.

6. Stages of Change

a) After completing my behaviour change assignment I am at termination state because what I thought that I will change my sleeping behaviour finally I did that now I am having a proper time for sleep as everything is scheduled properly and I am having a properly balanced life.

7.Personal Strength and Slips/Setbacks

a) The two-personal strength of mine are that my will power is very strong that once I have commit one thing then I will definitely do that and second one is that self control I am having control on me that no one can influence or force me to do anything on which I am not agree.
