How to set your 2021 health goal!
Look at your whole life and reflect on what is working and what isn’t.
Is there a gap between where you are and where you want to be?
Choose an over arching goal that encompasses this gap – e.g. A gap being “I want clear skin” reality being “my skin is oily and prone to acne”. the overarching goal would be “I want clear skin”.
Break it down!
E.g. to get clear skin you need to find the cause. This may mean visiting a practitioner, read a book, join a FB group. Is it your diet, an allergy, skin care routine?
Looking at all areas surrounding your goal, figure out what support you may need, what you would determine as a success, what your motivation is for creating this health goal, and if you need to upskill in order to achieve this goal.
Choose SMART goals for each potential cause
S – Specific
Your health goal needs to be specific! One subject matter per SMART goal. E.g. dietary, physical, mental, emotional.
Imagine if you had to create a sticker chart for this goal, have you worded it so that each day/week you can look back and say yes I achieved it, or no I did not achieve it?
A – Achievable
Health goals need to be achievable! Don’t set yourself something that you can’t physically do. Like say you choose a goal of running three times a week for 20 minutes, but you have a broken leg – this is not achievable!
Something that would be achievable (if you had a broken leg) might be to do the exercises your physio gave you each day for two weeks.
R – Relevant
This is why we looked at the gap between where you wanted to be and where you are! Your goal needs to be relevant to you! Just because everyone else is jumping on a Wim Hof cold shower routine, doesn’t mean that it’s the best thing for you to do.
T- time measured
Set a time limit on it! Say 2 weeks, or a month.
It needs a time limit to make it both relevant and achievable.
Examples of SMART goals
I will eat one serving of salmon twice a week for the next two weeks.
I will cut out all histamine foods for the next two weeks.
I will cut out processed dairy for the next two weeks.
I will wash my face with rose water each day for the next two weeks.
I will meditate at night, 3 nights a week, for the next two weeks.
I will drink 2L of water each day for the next two weeks OR I will drink 1 glass of water after each meal for the next two weeks.
