There’s a saying that a goal without a plan is just a wish, and although some wishes do come true, goals without plans are unlikely to translate into the healthy future you dream of.
Successful goals need to be broken down into achievable steps, and now you have a clear, inspiring health goal in mind, you need to choose a behaviour or two to focus on. It can be tempting to want to change everything at once but we know, unequivocally, that this is destined for disaster.
Once you’ve chosen the behaviours that will achieve your healthy New Year goals you can work on the steps to bring the plan to life.
To create a healthy New Year action plan roadmap you will need to write down all the steps you need to take, the reminders and prompts that will keep you on track, the night before preparation, the time that you will do each step, who you can call on for support, who will keep you on track, as well as the people who may try to sabotage you!
