Making Fitness Accessible: Setting Goals
What are your goals? What would you like to achieve? What are you working towards?
Imagine how you will feel once you have achieved your goals? Does it feel good? Then keep going…
Why Goals are important
Goals are important if we know where we are headed it’s easier to stay on track. Having a goal to work towards can help us feel motivated to keep going.
How to set Goals
Setting a long term goal would be a final destination of something you would like to achieve, these larger goals can sometimes feel too distant or too much and possibly the thought of working towards them may feel a little overwhelming. So by breaking this long term goal down into smaller more achievable short term goals we make the whole process more manageable, and we will also feel positive about the journey when we hit our small goals encouraging us to keep going
Keeping to your Goals
Staying positive is key in achieving your goals, mindset is everything. When your glass seems half empty just pour your drink into a smaller glass and it will be full again. It can be helpful to break our goals down making them S.M.A.R.T;
Specific: Be clear and specific so your goals are easier to achieve. This also helps you know how and where to get started.
