Happy #MotivationMonday Everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend.
It's the beginning of a new week, so today is a great day to start setting some fitness and wellness goals. So what's the best way to reach those goals?
Here are a few tips to help you get started:
🌟 Be specific: Set a goal that is clear and measurable. Instead of saying "I want to start running" try "I want to run a 5k in the next 12 weeks."
🌟 Make a plan: Once you have your goal in mind, create a plan of action. Decide on the steps you need to take to reach your goal and put them into action. Being specific with your goals, allows you to identify and implement specific steps to reach your goal. Keep a chart of your progress.
🌟 Celebrate milestones: Work backwards from your goal; break your goal down into smaller milestones and celebrate when you reach them. This will help keep you motivated and give you a sense of accomplishment. In the beginning, you can set more frequent milestones, daily or weekly to keep you engaged. Let's continue to use running as an example, each week you could increase your time or distance (not both) that you run by 5-10%.
🌟 Be realistic: Don't set goals that are too far out of reach. Be realistic about what you can achieve and set goals that are challenging but attainable. Remember, setting realistic goals is the first step towards achieving them. Setting unrealistic goals will only result in frustration and potentially derail your motivation and dedication to the goal. For instance, if you have never run, start with a 5k goal, rather than a marathon.
Setting, reaching and maintaining your wellness goals are more an exercise in mental stamina, than physical. The goal is to stay motivated and engaged.
