Tips to have a happy and healthy new year.
Here are some tips on how to have a happy and healthy new year.
- Take stock of what you want in life, and develop a plan to achieve those goals. The most important thing is to set SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) goals:
- Specific means that you should be able to describe your goal clearly in one sentence. For example, “I want to lose weight” or “I want to run a marathon next year.”
- Measurable means that there’s some way you can measure whether you’ve achieved your goal or not. For instance, if your goal was to run a 5K race next year and you ran that event this month but didn’t get first place, then maybe your 5K wasn’t as successful because it wasn’t measured as “successful.”
- Achievable means that it’s realistic for you — it’s doable within the timeframe of your plan. If your goal is to run a marathon next year but only have one week before the race date, then maybe running that distance
