Abstract

This report highlights that a multi-faceted approach is needed to enable effective self-care. It identifies five enabling factors:

  1. growth mindset, self-efficacy and ‘grit’
  2. removing friction costs (i.e. removing increases in effort required to perform a behaviour)
  3. social connections
  4. intrinsic motivation
  5. goal setting and feedback.
