5 steps to BIG Changes

Got goals on your mind? Creating new routines and habits can be simple when you break down the components to get there.

Step 1: Choose what’s important and be specific about your goals

In order to know what you want and where you want to go, it’s important to take inventory of where you are now. If you want to be a better runner, then measure your 1 mile run. Where are you now?

Step 2: Set small milestones

It’s natural to think about big goals, but breaking down a big goal into smaller milestones helps you understand what happens before achieving the big goal and figure out what needs to be done to get there.

Step 3: Prepare for obstacles

Obstacles will come up and there’s a good chance you already know what they might look like. Think about the strategies you can use when those hurdles arise to help you keep moving forward.

Step 4: Track progress over time

Tracking your progress will look different depending on what your habit or routine goal is. It might be tracking number of workouts per week, times you successfully complete a new habit, testing a new skill or looking at muscle mass levels.

Step 5: Celebrate the wins

As you reach your small milestones, don’t forget to celebrate! Choose a celebration that helps you get closer to your ultimate goal, rather than one that sets you back.
