A new year is just a day away! Now is a great time to set a goal or make resolutions. Working towards achieving goals help to improve mood! If you are considering setting a goal for yourself. Set yourself up for success by ensuring you set a "smart" goal.
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.
