• Find ways to make the goal setting enjoyable.
When it comes to setting health goals, here are five things that you can do in creating achievable goals. Set realistic goals. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Instead of trying to do too much at once, focus on small, achievable steps, break up larger goals into smaller tasks, and aim for progress over perfection.
Get support. Having someone else who’s also striving towards their own goals can really help to motivate you and stay focused and work hard at achieving your goals.
Celebrate successes. Take time out of every week to congratulate yourself for everything that you’ve achieved thus far.
This will provide extra motivation when things start to feel tough or unachievable. Be flexible. Life happens. Unexpected events occur all the time, and sometimes these can derail our plans completely.
If this happens, don’t beat yourself up over it. Just take a step back, reevaluate what needs to be done in order for you to reach your resolution. Make it fun. Maybe plan an activity that’s related to your resolution or reward yourself with something special that will continue to help you achieve your goal.
