Most of us have experienced those “all or nothing” feelings one time or another. We might think, “If I don’t go 110 miles an hour, (aka, eat right, get a good amount of sleep, exercise, hydrate, ____ fill in the blank) I may as well give up on ALL of it.
That shouldn’t be the case. At. All.
It’s important to make goals to keep you accountable and give you something to work towards; however, it’s important to also fine tune those goals so they are S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, ATTAINABLE, REALISTIC, & timely).
Changing habits can be stressful at first, but it’s also very exciting! You’re becoming a better version of YOU! A better wife, a better mom/dad, a better sister, son, cook, employee, etc. How cool is that?!
Remember to create a solid support team as you build on these healthy habits as you embark on this journey – there will be ‘haters‘… some who don’t view your healthy lifestyle as ‘worth it’. (You might find those individuals are addicted to convenience and really just don’t take the time to understand…now’s your chance to share with them in a non threatening way)
So list out your REALISTIC goals and attack it with a SMART plan.
Oh, and don’t take yourself too seriously….remember to have fun.
