Hi AnneMaryCr,

Welcome! Please post here if you have any questions or thoughts on the program. I check in every week, and I will be sure to reply to you. Also, please post any thoughts or discussion ideas in the rest of the forum. My hope is if even one person is posting, then others may be more likely to post. Worst case scenario you will just have me replying to you. Either way, you are not going through this program on your own. I hope to read more form you soon!

Thank you for posting!

Ashley

Hi Perth,

Thank you so much for your kind words. It means a lot to me 🙂.

You are thinking about all the right things to create goals. You are certainly on the right track. Now we just need to figure out concrete steps to get to your vision. So if you were able to take things more easy what specifically would you need to do to get there? Would you need to complete specific exposure work? Would you need to take up a practice like mindfulness, more time in nature or yoga? What concrete things can you do to learn to take things more easy?

You also mention about finding the energy to get started on some of the goals. This is a great place to start. A goal could simply be decide on a goal this week that may help to motivate me. Or possibly, read 5 articles on motivation this month. Or go for a 30 minute walk 4 times this week (physical activity is amazing for improving for energy). Or learn one new health recipe this week (food is also essential for energy). Or you could even set a goal around your sleep. These are just suggestions of course, decide on a goal that makes sense for you.

Thanks for replying!

Ashley

Hi Perth,

Great to see you have started the program! I am so excited to hear that someone would like to discuss the program. That is what we are here for :)

Setting a goal is an important first step. In order to increase your success at achieving your goal it is important to ensure they are "SMART" goals. Please review Session 3 for more information. The acronym SMART is broken down as follows:

S - Specific - Be sure that you specifically outline what you want to accomplish. Breaking large goals into small steps helps too.

M - Measurable - Be sure you are able to measure if you achieved the goal or not. For example, a certain number of pages read, a certain fear level reached at a specific situation, a certain amount of time spent working on the program etc.

A - Achievable - Be sure your goals are realistic and attainable. It can be very overwhelming and demotivating if goals are too difficult to reach. Start small. 

R - Resonant - Make sure you are excited about the goal and that you will feel accomplished when you achieve this goal. Goals that are not resonant make it difficult to work towards.

T - Time Stamped - Make sure you give yourself specific deadlines when you want to goal to be completed.


With this in mind, how would you change your goal to ensure it is "SMART"?

Hope to read more from you soon,

Ashley



hi Ashley,


I don't know what I did in my previous post so that it did not display properly... anyway, I am trying to remember what I wrote there :)

I wanted to thank you for your good questions, for your honest and relentless interest you show towards us all, and that since many years (!) wow, what a merit...


so - to your question, how goals can be "smart"-er:

my thoughts were, that I would ask myself, how I would like to feel once the goal is achieved. I would ask myself, how my days would look like, what the exact difference would mean, along the way, and als, once the goal is achieved.. what little (and big) things would need to change, how would I need to feel, in order to have the energy so I can make things happen.


I think that was it....


Is this about right?
