Goal-setting. You might be thinking why do I need goals? All I need to do is go to the gym, exercise, then leave, right?
Goals are what push you to strive for more. Goals are what keep you going; they keep you consistent. It’s good to go to the gym but, if you don’t have goals that you are working towards, you won’t push yourself. You won’t achieve the results you are looking for and whatever motivation you started with will slowly start to dwindle.
Goal-setting doesn’t have to be big and scary. Goals can be small —for example, getting to the gym 3 times this week or drinking less soft drink.
The thing to remember is to make SMART goals. That is specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound goals.
Goals don’t take long to set for yourself; you can figure some out in even just 10 minutes. The pay-off is worth it. Over time you’ll notice your results are being achieved much quicker and your motivation will be through the roof!
