The Best of 2015
Here’s a look back at 5 of our top posts of 2015 that you read, loved, marked as your favorite recipes, and shared with others:
You Say Resolutions, I Say Goals that Lead to Healthy Habits
As you head into the New Year, try committing to habits rather than resolutions. Rather than trying to tackle multiple goals, start with one and then move on once that goal has been accomplished and integrated into your everyday routine (like brushing your teeth). You’ll feel successful, confident, and motivated to move on to the next goal. If one goal seems too big, break it down into smaller steps of inspired actions and check off your successes along the way.
The best goal is one that is SMART:
Here’s an example:
Rather than saying “I will eat more vegetables in 2016,” rephrase it as “I will eat a large salad for lunch 3 days a week for one month.” This is a specific goal that is measurable (use the Bye Bye Belly Bloat Journal to track your intake), attainable (knowing what you want to achieve, prep for the week ahead and your lunches will be ready to go each morning), realistic (some goals are easier than others, but choosing meaningful ones that you’re able to work toward with inspired actions such as adding variety to your lunch salad by switching up the greens, toppings, and healthy dressings keeps you motivated and will help you get where you want to be), and time-bound (commit to having salad for three days per week for one month). After one month, having a salad for lunch may become second nature and enjoyable. . .bam, you have a new healthy habit. If you decide having a salad isn’t what you envisioned it to be, no worries, evaluate what worked and what didn’t, and then move on to a new goal.
At the end of your time commitment, ask yourself the following:
What did I accomplish?
Did I develop a new healthy habit? Is it something I wish to continue?
Were there any roadblocks along the way? Do I need to rework anything and extend this goal?
Was my accomplishment meaningful? Did it make me healthier (emotionally, physically, spiritually)?
Now that we know how to set and evaluate goals for developing healthy habits, what have you accomplished in 2015? Write down your successes and celebrate them during the bridge between 2015 and 2016. And don’t forget to revisit them if you find you need to be reinvigorated for your goals leading into 2016.
With our goals and inspired actions written down for 2016, we’re ready to ring in the New Year. And to give you an extra boost, KalenaSpire just launched its online store with all your supplement and skin care needs. Here’s to a New Year filled with health, success, love, and a happy tummy!
