Wellness Goals


Truth #1

Truth #1

Guest Blog - Atara Weisberger-Tribe Health and Fitness Coaching


I could choose one word to describe modern American society today it would be: DISTRACTION I don't have to spell it out. You know what I'm talking about. (Raise your hand if the moment you open your conscious eye in the morning your are checking your social media? Like before you even go to the bathroom? Yup. Exactly. Priorities.) In contrast to us mere mortals, the most successful people in the world have one thing in common: FOCUS The thinking is pretty simple. You can't do everything. You certainly can't do everything well. But you can excel at your most important goals. So...... Step 1: List all of your wellness goals Step 2: Circle your two most important wellness goals. (based on your wellness vision and your "Why?"). Step 3: Marry these goals. Step 4: Avoid the rest of the goals you listed like the plague until you have successfully completed your top two wellness goals.Then you can go back and do Steps 1-3 again with the remaining list. Take it seriously and know what you care about most! Break your goals down into behavior-based (NOT outcome based) steps. For example, an action goal is "I will chop an apple right after dinner three nights this week to eat if I get the munchies later." An action goal is NOT "I will lose 5 pounds this week."

  1. Action steps should feel doable but a bit of a push for you.

  2. Action steps should be specific - what, when, where, how often.

  3. Celebrate your successes at the end of the week (in a way consistent with your goals :)

  4. Identify the challenges or obstacles you encountered this week



Do it anyhow.

Exercise is like a relationship...the more time you invest in it (in you, really) the more attached to and appreciative of it

you will become.


Time for exercise will never, ever appear on your schedule by itself. You will have to actively and consciously put it there.

There is hardly a single action you can take with a

greater cost-benefit ratio than exercise.

Don't like exercise?

That's ok.

Do it anyhow.
