The Necessity of Spaced Repetition
to Create New Behaviors


To increase an employee’s wellness will require the establishment of more healthy behaviors to replace old behaviors that have reduced wellness. As can be seen from the “Learning and Behavior Change Curve” chart below (click here for larger image), information retention after single presentation (the solid line Behavlrn.jpgcurve) declines rapidly after just a few weeks. Without the retention of information there is neither reason nor motivation to change behavior.
 


The dashed line curve on the chart shows how information retention increases with spaced repetition of information at one-week intervals over a period of nine weeks. It is this increasing retention that sustains the motivation and reason for behavior change (the dotted line curve).

In the Wellness Program, the 10 sessions spaced one week apart create the necessary reinforcement of the information necessary to get significant creation of healthier behaviors regarding sleep, exercise and nutrition. The individual coaching sessions continue that reinforcement and strengthen the new behaviors, while minimizing the reversion to the old, less healthy behaviors.
