A: Most of us know at least a little about goals. Setting a goal is one of the simplest and most basic success tools; it means to pick a target to aim at, a result you would like to happen, and then make a plan to work toward it. The lifestyle choices and decisions you make are so much easier and more compelling when you have a target to aim at, which gives you a reason to persist and follow through. Setting health goals will concentrate your energy to improve your chances at better health.
You can set goals around positive health practices like deciding to improve your diet, starting a regular exercise or meditation practice or coming in for regular chiropractic care. These goals are not only to avoid pain and illness; they are designed to increase health and wellness for a longer and better life. You could set a goal to clean up your nutrition and reduce or eliminate unhealthy food and drink habits like sugary soft drinks, excessive coffee or chips and candy.
So what are your health goals? To avoid pain? To improve your quality of life? To live as long as possible and be as healthy as possible? Learning to eat fresh, wholesome, natural foods, get enough rest, reduce your stress and keep your body tuned up and ready to go with exercise and chiropractic care are habits that will take you toward a healthier life.
Set your health goals, take your best actions to get there, and you can be a healthier you.
