Inspired by elements from neuroscience and psychological literature, a computational model of forming and changing of behaviours is presented which can be used as the basis of a human-aware assistance system. The presented computational model simulates the dynamics of mental states of a human during formation and change of behaviour. The application domain focuses on sustainable behavior.
