Take Action

Your fourth wellness step is to take action!

  1. 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."

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

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

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

  5. Identify the challenges or obstacles you encountered this week

(Note I didn't say beat yourself up about them! I said 'identify them' and see what you can learn from them for next week!)
