Setting S.M.A.R.T goals allows you to clarify ideas, focus your efforts, use your time and resources productively, and increase your chances of achieving what you want in life. To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:
Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
Measurable (meaningful, motivating)
Achievable (agreed, attainable).
Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive)
Not long ago, I found myself frustrated with my weight, fad diets and I lived my life in a constant state of disappointment. “How did I get here again?” I asked myself. Then I discovered something: none of those diets I tried asked or even required me to look from within for the “why” in my eating habits.
When it comes to making healthy eating habits stick, you need a plan. So where do you start? I suggest finding a quiet and calm place to write down your S.M.A.R.T goals. Outline your goals on paper to keep yourself accountable. Define the next steps on your sensible and practical steps that illuminate from your core beliefs!
