Improving the way you think: setting goals and creating your mood board

Setting your fitness goals when you start a routine is a key to ensuring that you maintain this journey in the long run. Goals are hard to set; If they are too simple, you may lose interest, and it will not be challenging. Too hard, and you can easily become destitute when you can’t achieve them. So here are some tips to help you focus on your goals: –

  1. Set a goal at once– Do not bite more than chew. Setting goals for yourself requires careful planning and thinking. This includes understanding your current needs, the ability to meet your goals, and the tools available. Our biggest mistake is trying to do so much in such a short time. This is especially true when you are starting something new. Choose goals that you see yourself achieving and tackle them all at once.
  2. Using smart methods– A smart, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-wise way to set your goals. When setting goals, you need to use this method. In short, using this method, you will create logical, measurable plans and have a timeline that will ensure your progress is tracked and monitored. An example of “SMART” for goal setting is running at leisure for 10 minutes and slowly and gradually increasing your time by one extra minute each day for 30 days.
  3. Keep the bar low– Like the “smart” approach we talked about earlier, your goal must be achievable. It should be easy but not too easy, and it should be challenging as you begin to see progress in your overall health and fitness. Be confident when you set a goal and believe that you can achieve it থাকা having an achievable plan in the early stages when you are starting out will allow you to be more motivated to stick to your fitness journey. This initial success is vital for building your motivation and confidence in the long run.
  4. Don’t compare– It’s easy to get discouraged when you start your fitness journey by comparing yourself to others on social media. Always remember, everyone starts somewhere, so don’t be discouraged by someone else’s progress but concentrate on your journey.
  5. Always remember what drives you– Always remember what you started on this fitness journey. Try to channel the same kind of drive that you have the same determination in the workplace to motivate you to achieve the goals you have set yourself.
  6. The results take time– Like business, success takes time and is related to your fitness goals in the same way. It takes weeks or even months to see the desired changes for yourself, both physically and mentally. A long-term mindset will allow you to see your goals as a change in your lifestyle rather than an intermediate solution.
