Achieve Glendale: Helping Aches & Pains

NEWSLETTER New Year New You

The start of the New Year is always filled with new beginnings and hope of something better. I was working with kids at church and we were talking about setting goals. The hard truth is that man people set goals at the beginning of the year only to fail miserably. But, if you don’t know where you are going, any path will take you there. For those of us who want to be more in control of our lives, I suggest setting SMART goals. There is evidence that people who set SMART goals are more likely to achieve their goal vs. people who don’t. So, what is a SMART goal? SMART is an acronym that stands for the following: If your goals meet the above criteria of specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely, then you are well on your way to making changes in your life. Now it just requires you to go do the work!

So, what are your goals? What positive changes will you make in your life in 2019? If you haven’t written down your goals, go do it and put them somewhere you can see them often, and share your goals with someone who cares about you and will help you stay accountable. I hope 2019 is your best year to date! I know I have set some lofty goals for myself and I look forward to the journey that 2019 will be. If you have set a health-related goal and need some help getting there, please let us help you. Your Friend, David Hawkins PT, CSCS P.S.
