2) Contemplation: - acknowledging that there is a problem but struggling with ambivalence. Weighing pros and cons and benefits and barriers to change. This stage helps people to start 'accepting' their problems and flaws.
3) Preparation/Determination: - taking steps and getting ready to change. In this stage they start making plans and structuring their goals
4) Action: - making the change and living the new behaviours. Starting to apply practically.
5) Maintenance: - maintaining the behaviour change that is now part of persons life.
