Tips for goal setting
With the Milestone Club in full swing I am compelled to talk about the skills that come with goal setting! The reason why it is so important to us to help you set these goals is because realistic, action-oriented and specific goals can be hard to define for yourself.
Here are words to AVOID when setting goals for yourself:
- Eat MORE veggies
- Eat LESS sugar
- Go to sleep EARLIER
- Eat HEALTHIER
Those are not specific or measurable goals. When setting goals that truly require a change and focus there are measurable words involved. Allow me to make those goals above specific and measurable for your understanding…
- Eat 4 servings of vegetables daily
- No sugar 5 out of 7 days per week
- In bed by 9pm with screens off
- Protein ,veggies and healthy fat at each meal
Those are very specific questions. When you reevaluate your action steps it is hard to distinguish what “more” means and what “less” means. If you really want to create change in your mind and body be real and realistic. We are here to help you make that happen.
