Goal setting is very popular during the start of a new year. As you set achievable goals for yourself, there will still be periods of time where those goals don’t seem possible. So how do you still make progress even when life gets chaotic?

Setting Goal Minimums

One way to maintain progress is to set a goal minimum so you can celebrate smaller achievements without pausing your overall goal.
Examples of goal minimums include:

New year goal — read a book 30 minutes a day.

Goal minimum — read a book at least 10 minutes a day.

New year goal — walk at least 10,000 steps per day.

Goal minimum — walk a minimum of 5,000 steps on busy days.

New year goal — plan ahead meals for the week.

Goal minimum — plan ahead at least 1 meal a day.

Establishing goal minimums gives yourself grace when life gets busy, while also holding yourself accountable. Our Health Coaches can help you establish your new year goals, and meet you where you're at on your health journey.
