Behaviour change techniques describe the content of behaviour change interventions, but do not adequately account for the actions that individuals must themselves undertake to successfully change or self-manage motivation or behaviour. This compendium of 123 self-enactable techniques fills this gap by combining behaviour- and motivation-regulation techniques across six existing classifications of behaviour change techniques and three scoping reviews, converting each into a self-enactable form with instructive examples to facilitate self-enactment. Qualitative feedback was gathered from intervention developers and the general public to improve the utility, congruence, and ease of self-enactability of technique definitions and instructive examples. This integrative index of self-enactable techniques can help intervention developers and individuals select appropriate self-directed techniques to self-manage motivation and behaviour. Future research with this compendium will expand on the number of behaviours covered by the instructive examples and link techniques with their potential impacts on theoretical determinants of behaviours.
