Did you know that you can rearrange the letters in the word “February” to spell “bury fear?” It’s time to help your clients bury their fears and set forth to achieve their goals. Of course, this is easier said than done, which is why we're offering you a free handout that walks its readers through the basics of setting achievable goals this February. Check out the handout preview below, and if you like what you see, get a copy for yourself...
Set Your Focus:
What goals will you set for February? It’s tempting set a goal like “I will lose a bunch of weight and never miss a workout,” but doing too much too fast can lead to burnout or even injury. Instead, focus on a single aspect of one of your larger goals.
For example, if you want to lose weight, the two keys are diet and exercise. Perhaps you want to start by reducing your saturated fat intake, or increasing your vegetable intake. Or you can talk with your doctor about setting a reasonable exercise schedule, and then set a goal related to that.
Since February is Heart Month, now’s a great time to pick a goal that will improve your heart health.
This February, I am going to focus on either...
- A Healthful Diet
- A Healthful Exercise Plan
Make a Plan:
Now that you’ve chosen your goal, it’s time to make a plan to achieve it.
If you’re looking at building a healthful diet, why not try one or two of the following...
- Add a light salad to one meal per day.
- Choose foods that are rich in fiber.
- Replace fatty protein foods and full-fat dairy products with leaner options.
If you’re looking at building a healthful exercise routine, consider these goals...
- Go for a 30-minute walk during your lunch break or after work.
- Jump rope during the commercial breaks in your favorite tv show.
- Try a new workout class.
