How to Achieve Your Healthcare Goals
Set SMART Goals:
S - Specific – Be specific with your desired goal, write it down and display for yourself to see daily.
M - Measureable – Measure your progress and create a chart to show your progress.
A - Accountability – Find a family member or friend to whom you can be accountable.
R - Realistic/Rewarding – Set realistic, attainable goals, and give yourself small rewards for achieving short-term goals.
T - Track Your Goals – Create small benchmarks/timetables to make your goal more attainable.
To stick to your healthcare goals, make sure that your goals are realistic and attainable. For example, don’t set a goal of exercising 1 hour daily, if you haven’t exercised in years. Start low, and increase slowly. Starting with 5-10 minutes of exercise twice daily, and increasing to a goal of 30 minutes daily over the next 1 month will be a goal that is much easier to attain.
Remember to surround yourself with supportive family and friends who are going to help your achieve your goals. Nothing is worse than having family or friends who are discouraging or negative. Push off old mind sets, and negative, “I can’t” attitudes. You can do it!
