Might believe they can’t make a change, or deny   that what they are doing is not a problem. This stage is also called the   “denial” stage.



During this stage, people weigh the costs (i.e.   effort, time, finances) and benefits of changing behaviors. People decide if   changing behaviors will be beneficial or worth it.



The stage where people intend to take action in the   immediate future, usually measured as the next month. Usually, they have   already taken some significant action in the past year. These individuals   have a plan of action. They see the ‘cons’ of continuing as outweighing the   ‘pros’ and they are less ambivalent about taking the next step. 



Action is the stage in which people have made specific   changes in their behavior or lifestyles within the past six months.



This is the stage of successful, sustained lifestyle or   behavior modification. In this stage, people work to prevent relapse back to   old behaviors.
