Being Your Best Self
Setting, Living, and Loving Your Goals Year-Round
As a busy mom, we live in a world full of constant pressure. Step outside your house and it probably won’t be long till you see a super-thin model taunting you to lose that baby weight. Maybe beauty commercials have you convinced that your skin’s terrible and your hair isn’t luscious enough. Perhaps you look at your neighbor’s nice new car and feel terrible that you can’t have one of your own. We can’t set goals to please someone else. You must set a goal for you!
Contemplating How You Want to Feel
Most of our health & fitness goals aren’t really about what we want to have or do; they’re about how we want to feel. Say you’re trying to lose weight. You’re probably doing so not for weight loss’s own sake, but because you want to feel healthier, have better self-esteem, or love the body you’re in. It’s those feelings that you need to tap into. By establishing how you want to feel, it becomes much easier for you to set goals, determine whether the goals you have are healthy, and then stick with those goals.
