The new year is approaching and many are always setting new goals for the coming year. However, setting goals may not always be easy. Different goals can easily be taken too much and motivation runs out very quickly because the implementation feels tough. So what should be considered when setting goals.
avoid taking too much
It is often easy to succumb to setting big goals, the list may include weight loss, a large amount of exercise, a healthy diet, adequate water intake, hard work, and an endless number of other tasks. Initial enthusiasm quickly rushes to fatigue, followed by irritation and a sense of failure.
You may well make a list of things you want to achieve, this list can include all the things. After making the list, mark the things that are most important to you, about three things are good. Write down what it takes to accomplish these, for example, if you want to lose weight, it usually requires changes in your exercise and eating habits that might otherwise be on the list.
Make a schedule for your goals, but don’t be too strict. A schedule can help motivate, but it shouldn’t be unrealistic. It is a good idea to consider factors and delays that are independent of yourself, as well as the possibility of schedule changes. It doesn’t have to start all at once. Getting used to a new rhythm and lifestyle takes about 60-90 days. You can easily split your goals for different time periods. For example, start the year by focusing on a healthy diet, a couple of months later gradually increase your workout, etc. In that case, not everything will come at once and the change will not feel too severe.
Remember the little things
Setting goals doesn’t just mean big physical goals. It’s good to remember things that seem small that ultimately have a big impact on well-being and can help with other goals. Investing in a good night’s sleep, finding your own time, and doing relaxing exercises or other activities will help with your mental well-being. Be sure to consider things that don’t require performance but make you feel good.
Give yourself time and be merciful. Well planned is half done. It is not wrong to prioritize yourself and your dreams, the longer you work for yourself, the better the outcome. It’s good to be aware of the things that different goals require, if you just jump straight into doing it to the fullest, fatigue strikes quickly. For example, if you’re signing up for a marathon for the first time, it’s good to realize how much it takes to practice and the rhythm of the rest of your life. Or if you want to improve your earlier time, what possible changes do you need to make.
By writing things down at the same time, you become aware of them and you also have to think about what each thing requires.
