Healthy Goal Setting for the New Year
According to the time management firm Franklin Covey, one-third of resolutions made do not make it past the end of January.
Have you ever started the New Year with a healthy goal and then fallen flat on your face? Well, guess what, so have millions, and probably billions of others all around the world. In fact, we all want to have the best expectations of ourselves, but too often, stress and the workload of life get in our way.
Most times, we think stress and its concomitant effects are preventing us from achieving our goals, meanwhile, we are our greatest hindrance. You might wonder why we are our own worst problem. This can be a hard pill to swallow sometimes but, the fact remains, we are our greatest problem. It comes down to our choices and self-discipline.
In order to achieve our goals (whatever they are), and be the best we can be, we have to first take care of the front lines. That means 'US!'
Your ability to care for yourself, plan your path and stay the course is what determines whether you will achieve that New Year’s healthy goal.
Helping you take excellent care of the "whole you" is one of the things we excel at. Our team thrives on helping our readers and our patients to be the best they can be. Those who suffer from neuropathy and chronic pain sometimes strive just to make it through the day. So, how do we control pain and move to be our best?
Using healthy goal-setting is the way to get started. Here is a link to obtain a copy of our diet and lifestyle plan that our patients have shown success with. Take a look at some of our recommendations and try one out for yourself.
You’re your own experiment. If you fail at your resolution attempt, don’t beat yourself up, and know you’re not alone. Try again!
A resolution doesn’t need to be tied to the New Year. So, if you missed your New Year’s goal, you can start again tomorrow, on a Monday, or after Valentine’s Day or any marker that means something to you, just as long as you’re ready to give it another go. It won’t guarantee success, but you don’t need to wait until another year comes around on the calendar to give it another go.
