If you are serious about setting goals, make them SMART. S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym that stands for specific, measurable, accountable, realistic and timely.
Let’s set just one goal for a healthier self. People are always looking for a quick fix, but when a quick fix lacks direction and an understanding of “why”, it is quickly broken.
Most people know what they should be doing for better health but doing it gets difficult. People become overwhelmed, don’t know where to start, lack accountability, or just aren’t interested. Making healthier choices is a life-long journey. It is okay to take a break and sit down for a bit IF eventually you stand back up and keep moving forward!
So, where do you start? Let’s start with looking at biometric data. If you don’t have any you can order an Engage 180 health risk assessment and get your biometric data. Do you have a particular risk factor that concerns you? Is weight an issue? Is there a theme within the factors? For example, getting active, eating less sugar/processed foods? What appeals to you in terms of improving your overall health?
Pick just ONE thing to begin working on. Now let’s make it SMART!
The Challenge: Start off right with one SMART health goal related to your health risks.
What is your SMART goal? Think about it? Write it down? Share your goal? Believe in the power you have to accomplish your SMART goal!
