Setting Intention in Your New Year
Rather than being overwhelmed with so many goals and resolutions, it's better to start SMART. Smart is an acronym that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely goals.
An example would be that rather than saying you want to lose weight, it would be better to say that you want go to the gym twice a week for at least twenty minutes each time for three months.
1. This is specific; you want to go to the gym.
2. This is measurable; you have a set amount of days each week and a time to do it, you either do it or you don't.
3. This is achievable; you can set aside 40 minutes each week spread over two days each week without giving up or relinquishing too much of your time.
4. This is realistic; this goal takes into account your lifestyle without asking for too much.
5. This is timely; you have a set amount of months to accomplish this goal and will be able to see the results and whether adjustments need to be made after the time period.
You don't need to pick this specific task, however, it's good to know how smart goals work before adding a bunch of resolutions to your plate.
43% of all people who create a "new years resolution" fail before February, but almost one of four quit within the first week of setting the goal.
You can do this. Take your time and pick something reasonable, something you know you can attain. I sincerely hope you reach all your goals for 2023.
