Goal Setting

Jan 12, 2021 | Healthy Habits

​It’s that time of year when we look to the future. A fresh start, a clean slate, no matter the past, no matter the present. Have you decided to set goals for this year? Think of a goal as an endpoint, and intentions are the daily movements needed to reach your goal.

​People with written goals are 50% more likely to achieve them than people without goals.

​When it comes to making a change, the people who succeed set realistic, specific goals.

​What goes into a goal? Well, it has to be S.M.A.R.T.

​S. Specific — deciding to eat healthy this year by eating more vegetables.
M. Measurable — deciding to eat more vegetables by eating two servings of vegetables at dinner.
A. Attainable — whether cooking at home or food from a restaurant, adding vegetables at dinner can be achieved.
R. Realistic — perhaps your schedule changes drastically on the weekends, so committing to eating two servings of vegetables at dinner on Monday through Friday is more realistic.
T. Time-bound — start by trying that for one week.

Here’s how the goal would come together: eat two servings of vegetables at dinner on Monday through Friday next week. Setting specific goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible. Yes, you can!

​Happy goal setting.
