6.3.1  Readiness

Readiness implies a degree of willingness and eagerness of an individual to learn something new. Individuals learn best when they are physically, mentally and emotionally ready to learn — and they do not learn well if they see no reason for learning. Getting the audience ready to learn, creating interest by showing the value of the subject matter and providing continuous mental or physical challenge is usually the health educator’s responsibility. Since learning is an active process, the audience must have adequate rest, health, and physical comfort while learning.
