The My Life Healthy Living Journal encourages people living with chronic conditions, mental health issues and/or disability record their visions with goals and action steps to help communicate with support teams and health professionals.
It offers space to document contact details of health professionals, support workers and service providers, note information about appointments, activities, actions/interventions to meet their goals, and the methods being used to monitor progress and outcomes over time.
This resource is underpinned by the Model for Healthy Living (Church Health Centre, 2012) that looks at seven life domains:
The model recognises how the various life domains interrelate and the importance of gaining and maintaining balance.
Section 4 of the journal explores each dimension.
Develop a vision for a healthy life and explore personal strengths, supports, and consider the barriers to achieving the person’s vision.
Create goals, enact a plan and monitor progress toward the achievement of the person’s goals.
The person can explore each of the dimensions of the Model for Healthy Living using the Look, Think, Act process to help clarify thinking, and develop goals and action plans.
