Goals in 2017

By Kristen - Dietitian

As the New Year is upon us, many of us begin to think about personal or wellness goals to achieve during the upcoming year.  Like with anything, a well thought out plan can help set you up for success. As you begin to formulate your goals consider the following:

  • Set achievable yet challenging goals.
  • Create a long term goal that is supported by shorter term goals. Depending on the number you have chosen make sure to prioritize.
  • Write your goals down. Place them where you can readily see them for inspiration.
  • Determine how you will monitor progress: electronically or with pen and paper.
  • Acknowledge and celebrate when you have achieved your goals. Preferable choose something that is non-food related.
    • Examples: new running shoes or workout clothes or a massage.

As you work towards your goals remember to be patient and kind to yourself. If you do not achieve a goal refrain from seeing it as a failure but rather see it as an opportunity to learn about what didn’t work. Doing so will allow you to reassess the situation and redefine goals.  Remember take it one step at a time.

Wishing you all the best in 2017,
