Health behavior change is one of the most challenging aspects of a lifestyle medicine (LM) program. A "one size fits all" approach does not generally lead to long-term adherence and success in an LM program. Developing a set of LM tools that works with the practice setting of the provider and that is diverse enough to be adaptable to all patients may lead to a more successful LM practice. The purpose of having an LM toolbox is to improve health behavior change by increasing motivation, increasing self-awareness, decreasing implementation barriers, improving education, and tracking progress. This presents several LM tools that can be used in an LM program to improve health behavior change adherence.
