Setting Goals for New Years

As 2013 draws to a close, it’s a great time to learn how to set goals for yourself in order to make effective New Years resolutions! The new year is right around the corner, and you may already be thinking about bettering yourself in some vague way, by creating a weight loss plan, becoming more organized, or exercising more, but will you stick to your plan? Many resolutions don’t amount to much, but yours can be the exception to the rule, if you focus on setting goals that help you down the path to optimum health.

When learning how to set goals for yourself effectively, you first must be sure you have a manageable plan. Draft your resolutions using specific words, rather than vague concepts. “I will exercise twice a week and eat an extra serving of vegetables each day” is a much more actionable goal than “This year I will have healthier habits”. Avoid ambitions that are too extreme, keeping goals small enough to accomplish, while setting a clear timetable to get things done. Be realistic- you’re probably not going to lose 50 pounds by the end of the month, and making that your goal is likely to discourage you into inaction. If you lack inspiration, we have some suggestions for New Year’s resolutions that will set you on your own path toward optimum health and wellness.

If your New Year’s resolution is to have a healthier body and mind, Physical Medicine and Wellness Center of Northern Kentucky can help. With a wide variety of holistic healing practices to help patients achieve optimum health, we offer treatment for many medical concerns.
