2.MEASURABLE

So you would know when you have achieved it.
To achieve a goal you have to measure progress. How much kg or lbs do you want to lose ?How many times do you want to exercise in a week? If we can’t measure, we can’t measure progress.

 

3.ACHIEVABLE

Goals you are able to work on.It is better to exercise twice weekly than to exercise everyday and breakdown after January.
Make sure the goals you’re setting are genuinely achievable. Start small !!

 

4.REALISTIC

Be ambitious but practical. Set goals that are realistic. Setting an achievable health goal obviously makes it realistic. Change is a process, so be realistic and start small.

 

5.TIMEBOUND

Your goal must be timebound. A smart health goal is not of much use unless it is timely.

We monitor and evaluate with time to ensure we are on track.
