A person who remains consistently committed to his healthy new lifestyle for an extended length of time, is in the maintenance stage of behavior change.The specific length of time that needs to pass before one is declared to be in this stage varies depending on several factors.Such as the behavior that was changed and the mental feelings a client has toward the change.For example, does he still require a personal fitness trainer to motivate and reward him for staying on his program, or does he do the exercise because he now enjoys it? Establishing a new habit takes a minimum of 30 days, and when it come to diet and exercise practices, three to six months often is needed before a person feels that the behavior change is a part of his lifestyle.
