Your invitation to join Our LiveWell

Have you ever tried to break an unhealthy habit?

Have you ever tried to break an unhealthy habit, or start a healthy one? It’s tough isn’t it! Here at LiveWell, we’re passionate about helping you to do just that. We’re here for your health and wellbeing. We’re here to empower you with little lifestyle changes that add up to make a big impact on your day-to-day.

We don’t often follow through on our goals because we don’t make them public. Think of those new year's resolutions that you set and forget before January’s out. When we make our resolutions public we are much more likely to achieve them. This is one of the reasons that weight-loss groups are so successful; one study showed that people who complete a program with friends are much more likely to achieve their target weight. Or my wife has an arrangement to go for a run once a week with a friend; the idea of letting her down were she to bail overpowers any lack of motivation to get her trainers on. And it works vice-versa!

Introducing Our LiveWell: a fun and light-hearted online community where we'll encourage and empower one another. It’s a space for naming and committing to our healthy-living goals. It’s a forum for sharing our successes and cheering one another on. It’s a place to receive accountability and support when the going gets tough. We're in it together!

For me, I find it hard to fit in exercise around a busy work and family life. Yet I know that when I do get out for a run or bike ride, my I really benefit from it. Further to this, I'm conscious that in this summer heat I've been a bit too tempted to opt for that mid-week refreshing beer. So, here's me publicly committing to my goal: To get out for a run or bike ride at least once a week. And to only drink alcohol on Friday and Saturday evenings.

What's your goal?

This is your invitation to join Our LiveWell. Come and join a community on a journey to LiveWell in Dorset, together. It’s relevant to us all! Joining Our LiveWell comes with a commitment to the LiveWell Dorset Pledge.

By joining Our LiveWell, we invite you to commit to the LiveWell pledge:

  • To make healthy eating choices
  • To drink less alcohol
  • To increase my physical activity
  • [If you smoke] To start my journey to give cigs the boot
If you’re ready to live by this pledge, join Our LiveWell

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
