It all starts with an intention..."I want to be healthier" followed by meaning..."so that I can have more energy to enjoy my classes and time with friends" and achieved by small daily behaviors.
Your intentions become reality when you create a combination of Long Term and Short Term goals
Long Term Goals set your destination. It’s important for this goal to be realistic and to be connected to a personal meaning statement that is unique to you.
Daily Short Term Goals are specific behaviors that include details like how and when they will be completed so there is no question what you need to do!
|Long Term Goals||Short Term Goals|
|“I want to sleep better so that I have more energy to enjoy my life”||“I will set a reasonable time to go to bed tonight and make sure that I allow myself time to wind down and relax”|
|“I want to be more active so that I can improve my health”||“After lunch I will take a 20 minute walk”|
|“I want to get my work done on time so that I can feel calmer and accomplished”||After breakfast I will turn off my cell phone and email alerts for 90 minutes”|
|“I want to experience more happiness in my life so that I can have a closer relationships with my husband and children”||“I will practice gratitude by complimenting three people today”|
