Healthy Goal Setting
by Michael Jones, WHE, CMT,
ATH Co-Editor of Holistic Nutrition
Editor's Note from Michael Jones: Being healthy doesn't have to be so difficult. Simply focus on one aspect of your health at a time. Remember small steps make a big change.
We all have goals we want to achieve. Whether it is short-term or long-term, we need a plan to make them a reality. When you want to adopt a healthy lifestyle, first think about why you desire to make a change. Do you want to lose weight, management a physical aliment or just know it's time to create something better and different in your life?
Next, you want to start out slowly. When you take small steps, you are more successful. You are able to really focus on that specific thing, so you're not overwhelmed. So, start out your week with one primary goal. For example, initially... I will focus on drinking more water. Let your week be about taking steps to increase your intake and finishing those bottles of water. Once you have finally adopted that healthy habit, then you move on to the next. Again, the goal is not to create more than you can handle. Because when you do... you will give up and turn back to your unhealthy ways.
Goals are all about moving forward in life. We have these objectives to give us a “meaning” or “purpose”. You will feel good at the end of the day once you've accomplished your daily tasks. So make healthy goals to live an active, prolonged life. Health doesn’t have to be this hard, stressful mountain to climb. When you take it slow, you are able to really educate yourself. You want to learn more about why you are making this change, and it is wonderful to take the time to feel, see and appreciate the differences in your body.
Setting healthy goals is a step forward in living the life you truly want to live.
