By asking yourself a few questions, you can better develop your new goals.
Think about your new goals

First, decide whether you want to work on a goal for a small or large period of time. Would you like to achieve something in the short term (approx. 3 months) or in the long term (6 months or more)?
Next, decide what you want to focus on. Do you want to lower your cholesterol levels? keep running? Lose weight?
Then you decide how much. How much Do you want to lower your cholesterol levels? How far do you want to race How much weight do you want to lose
The final step is to set a deadline. Consider what is happening in your life, how far you are from your goal, how much time you can devote to working toward it, and any other factors that might be worrying you. Once you set a reasonable deadline, work toward it as if you can’t change it.

It’s difficult for some to set a goal because you have so many goals you want to achieve. On the other hand, setting a goal can be difficult because you may have no idea what you want to work towards.
No matter where you are, you have to do it prioritize. Decide on the main focus You want to achieve it and set it as your goal. Try not to let other potential targets crowd out your priorities.
If you work on too many things at the same time, you will never reach the main goal!
Create a SMART goal
A SMART goal is the best way to set a goal. CLEVER stands for Sspecific, Mbearable, Areachable, Relegant, Ttime bound. By developing a goal using the SMART frameworks, you will be able to successfully achieve your goal!
It’s important to be specific when setting a goal. By being as specific as possible, there is no confusion as to what your exact end goal is.
Instead of setting a goal to “walk more,” you could change it to “take 10,000 steps a day.” This might be right for you meant by walking more, but by specifically saying you want to take a certain number of steps gives you a goal to aim for.
If you set a measurable goal, you can measure your result against different points. Basically, that means there’s a way to see progress as you work toward your goal.
If your goal is to lose 5 pounds, you can see your weight drop by 1 pound, then 2 pounds, then 3 pounds, and so on. You can measure the progress!
Side note: If your goal is to lose weight, you may find that your weight decreases and then regains… Don’t worry if the scale doesn’t always go down!
In order to achieve an achievable goal, one must be realistic. When you set a goal, you want it to require some modification and effort, but not impossible.
If you’re someone who doesn’t tend to run but has a goal to run a marathon at a 5-minute pace, that might be a bit of a stretch. You may be able to do this at some point, but is it currently viable?
The same person can choose an attainable goal, e.g. B. running two consecutive miles at a 7-minute pace or running 5 km. These are goals that require effort but are doable for the person they are on.
Decide on a goal that makes sense for you. If you’re not interested in running, why set yourself the goal of running a marathon?
