To live a healthier more fulfilling life, choose a daily or weekly goal for yourself, such as eating five servings of fruits and vegetables per day or going to the gym three times per week.
Set up a SMART goal – a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound.
Specific – develop the details of your goal (what, where, when, why)
Measurable – define a quantity (frequency, amount, etc.) that you can measure
Attainable – do you have the means and attitude to accomplish this goal?
Realistic – consider the goal and your time-frame. Is this doable?
Time-bounded – by what deadline or time-frame do you wish to accomplish this goal?
Goals provide a direction to attain a desired outcome. Intention keeps us focused on the present moment journey along the way of achieving our goals. Setting goals with conscious intentions can be a powerful combination, allowing space to learn, grow and adjust along the way. When we incorporate intention, goal planning and realistic actions we can create a winning structure.
