A lot of us set out at the beginning of a new year with some fitness goals we’d like to achieve.
But by the time February is coming to an end — a lot of us have lost focus and are not on the right path to reach the fitness goals we set out to achieve.
If this has happened to you at this point in the month — you are not alone.
In today’s post, I have three simple steps that will help you re-set your mind and put you on the path to your best health ever in 2022!
Get Clear On Your Goals
In order to achieve something, you have to identify exactly what it is. “Being healthier” is not a goal. “Toning up” is not a goal. They’re great concepts, but they’re too vague to be able to track or measure. Your goal needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and have a deadline. So, we might change “being healthier” to getting to a lower average daily blood pressure or blood sugar, or perhaps decreasing your waist size to a certain measurement by a certain date. These things are measurable and there is a deadline.
Identify The Action Plan
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Identify the small action steps that, over time, will help you achieve your goal. And yes, I said small action steps for a reason. When setting your goal, think big. When taking action, think small. If you try to do too much too soon, you will likely get overwhelmed and stop working on your goal altogether.
Improve Your Mindset
This is perhaps the most important aspect of long-term success … with your health and with every aspect of your life. What you say to yourself matters. How you think matters. How you frame things in your mind matters. Improving your mindset isn’t easy, but with daily practice you can change your mindset over time.
A couple of examples: 1) Find 3 things to be grateful for every day and, 2) Push negative noise out of your head when it pops up and replace with a positive phrase.
Done right, goal achievement doesn’t have to be complicated. Decide what you want to accomplish, identify the actions that you need to take to get there and re-frame your mindset.
