A GOAL SHOULD SCARE YOU A LITTLE…
AND EXCITE YOU A LOT
Forget resolutions and work on your intentions, which can be cultivated any time of year.
Think in terms of big overarching BIG objectives as well as using the strategy of establishing MICRO-GOALS. These goals can help you (no matter what you want to achieve) focus on specific areas as you progress through a larger plan.
Think about establishing goal categories and then place your micro-goals into these categories.
(These are just some examples…)
– stress management
– strengthening (ID specific areas)
– mobility impacts (ID specific areas)
– sleep quality
– confidence building
– athletic goals
– other desired achievements
– injury prevention
– positive patterns to keep (think physical, mental, emotional)
– negative/dysfunctional patterns to break (think physical, mental, emotional)
– (what’s unique to you?)
WRITE THIS STUFF DOWN (that is an important part of goal setting and planning.)
Ideally, keep a DAILY JOURNAL to track what you’ve done and how you are meeting these goals. Consistency is key.
Set backs happen; stay the course.
And, of course, yoga and self reflection time / biofeedback time on the mat truly helps foster this important goal setting ritual, creating space in body, brain and heart to set and follow a new path….
