We are halfway through 2022, so now might be the ideal opportunity to re-evaluate your GOALS!
At the WLA we focus on setting a 30, 60 or 90-day sensory goal 🗓️
We ask that you create an image in your mind with the goal you want to achieve in 30/60/90 days. Creating an image in your mind makes it easier for you to see that your goal is possible. You know where you are going and it is easier to take action. It is visual for you and you actually know what you want to achieve.
A good goal-setting strategy is the SMART goal checklist. SMART goals are:
Your goal should be specific to you. What is the actual goal? What do you want to achieve? Rather than saying “I want to lose weight” say “I want to lose 10kg by my sister’s wedding” or “I want to eat healthily 80% of the week”. You are declaring what you will do, how long you will do it and when you will do it.
Your goal should be measurable. How will you know that you have met your goal? How will you track this goal? Remember that there are a lot of ways to track your progress that do not include the weighing scales.
Your goal should be achievable. Can you actually achieve this, is it possible? Ask yourself if you have the time and resources (money, equipment, support) to achieve your goal. Setting a goal which is achievable will set you up for success and not disappointment down the line.
Your goal should be relevant. Why do you want to reach this goal? It is important to set goals that are relevant and meaningful to you and where you are at in your life right now. Ask yourself what is most important to you, and then determine your goals.
Your goal should be time-bound. When do you plan to reach your goal? Once you have set your goal, pick a time scale or limit for when you want to achieve it. Is this a specific date or special occasion – this will give you something to work towards and motivate you to get started and stay on course!
