Goals for Better Health!

Bottom Line: 

A new year has come again, and that means it's time to revisit and renew your goals for better health! There’s no better time to evaluate your health, assess your wellness, and to start making healthy changes. Goal setting may not be the easiest thing to do but setting SMART goals can set you up for long-term success. 

Why it Matters: 

SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Trackable. Using SMART goals makes it much more likely you’ll reach your target, which also helps keep your motivation high. And setting these health goals shouldn't be stressful. Remember, each action you take towards better health is a positive step in the right direction and using the SMART framework can help you stay calm and focused. Set aside a few minutes right now and use our handy how to set SMART health goals outline below to get started: 

  • Be Specific. Exercising more or eating better are good ideas but nearly impossible to quantify. Aim for specific goals like exercising daily or eating less than 25 grams of sugar each day instead. 
  • Make it Measurable. Set a measurable goal like exercising 5x per week for 20 minutes. 
  • Make it Attainable. Avoid aiming too high or too low. Your health goals should be attainable relative to your current commitments and habits. 
  •  Be Realistic. Determine what changes you can realistically and reasonably commit to when considering your current health habits. 
  • Make it Trackable. This is key. Goals that are trackable help you monitor your progress throughout the year and let you know when it’s time to celebrate your successes! 

Next Steps: 

Don’t let your new year's resolutions go unfulfilled. Remember, by setting SMART goals, you'll be able to jumpstart your journey to better health. And if you’re near Clear Lake and you’ve been living with chronic pain or learning to live with a new injury, schedule a visit with us today. We're here to accomplish your health goals for 2022 and beyond, and that starts with getting you off the sidelines and back in the game!

Testimonials

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
