Now that you know what you want to achieve (your destination), the next step is to create a plan of action (your roadmap). As a member of the DISCOVER YOUR ZEN program, you’ve got a huge part of this step already completed. Your plan of action should include a detailed list of steps and actions you’ll take to reach each goal. And that’s exactly what you are getting from DISCOVER YOUR ZEN each and every day. All you have to do is just log-in each day to complete the suggested actions.
But since I want to prepare you for the future, let me guide you how to develop your action plan for goals you set in the future…
Look at your first goal. Make a list of things that will help you achieve the goal. Let’s say it’s the first day of the month and your goal is to lose five pounds by the last day of the month. What healthy exercises and eating habits could help you lose the weight? Before you answer this, identify any unhealthy behaviors that have contributed to your weight gain. Replace them with healthy habits and activities that will help you lose the weight.
Depending on what your unhealthy habits are, you may want to incorporate one or more of these healthy habits to help control your weight. Of course, in your SMART action plan you will need to be more specific about what, when, where, how, and why you will take these actions.
Examples of habits you could include in your action plan:
Here are a few other tips and ideas that can help you create your healthy action plan.
You may want to find support groups, where people have similar health needs and goals to your own. They can be a great resource for help as you set your goals and create your action plan. And once again, you’re in luck! You have a support group right here in the DISCOVER YOUR ZEN program. Join us at the link shown below.
