Setting Health Goals For The New Year


A New Year will be here before you know it and it’s important to start it off right. To do that you need a plan of action and to make a plan you need to know what your end goals are. So lets work on setting some goals.

As you prepare your goals for the New Year especially the ones that are health related there a few ways you can look at it, you could have a goal focused on loosing weight, on improving your fitness, or even eating better. It could even be a combination of the three.

With whatever goal or goals you choose you should make sure they have these 3 success factors in common.

  1. They’re specific- they are clearly defined. For example, “I will lose 10 pounds or I will eat no wheat”.
  2. They have a time frame- you can provide a date by which you plan to achieve your goal or a specific time frame.
  3. A list of actionable steps to achieve your goal- you can create a list of steps you need to complete to reach your end goal, each step should have an action associated with it.

When setting your health goal or goals for the New Year make sure they adhere to the 3 success factors. As a final note about selecting your goals, make sure that you don’t exceed 2 or 3 goals total. The more goals you have the less likely you are to complete them because of a lack of focus. The best practice is to pick one goal and go for it.

Happy New Year!

Let’s Talk About Health


Health is a hot topic, and we LOVE that!

No matter what your health views are, we truly believe that the world is a better place when health is a focus. The more awareness there is on the importance of health, the more likely the health industry, our society and our own personal health is to improve.

“Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.” – Stephen Covey

And that’s why we are excited to join Greg Hollenback on his Radio TalkShow, The Modern Eater, this Saturday, December 5th at 6pm MST to talk about Health, Holiday Eating and of course our pet project, PALEO Cleanse.
