How are you doing on your new years resolutions? Are you keeping on track with the goals you have set for 2018? Did you know that most new year’s resolutions fail within three weeks of the new year. Part of the reason that new year resolutions fail is because the goal was not a SMART goal.
SMART goals are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. So instead of resolving to “lose weight this year”, try to set a specific goal, such as “I will exercise for 30 minutes every day to obtain a heart rate of greater than 130 beats/minute.” Now whether or not you can achieve the goal of more exercise is something I won’t argue with you. I struggle with that goal myself.
