Goal Setting

With the new year upon us, it is time to embrace what is ahead and set some goals for 2009. These could be the same goals from last years that haven't quite come to fruition or they may be fresh, new milestones that you hope to achieve. Either way, I hope you have the focus and motivation to make one or two goals a reality this year.

Embracing the belief that sharing goals publicly holds a person more accountable and increases the chance of follow-through, I will share a few of my goals for 2009 and I hope you will share some of yours, big or small. (And, in June if you can't for the life of you remember what those goals were, they will be available in the Living a Whole Life archives for you to browse.)

My 2009 Goals
1. to complete my holistic nutrition studies and earn my Certificate in Nutritional Counseling
2. to increase my daily raw food intake through juicing or munching to 75%
3. to run 10 miles by August so I can participate in a popular race in my area
4. to feel young, energized and ready to take on the world when I turn the big 4-0 in the Spring
5. to increase blog visits and interaction by providing informative posts that help others improve their health and well-being. (so please keep reading and share!)

I could go on and on, but you get the picture. Now let us know what you want to accomplish in the next 12 months. Okay, I will start for you...

1. to read Living a Whole Life as often as the rest is up to you!!

Happy New Year!!

One of my big goals is to get into meditation more and possibly yoga :) (Shan, bet you never thought I'd say that! haha!)


Shannan and Karla said...

Let's are a few of my goals:

To actually use the re-usable grocery bags I've purchased. (This will require actually taking them into the grocery store!)

To increase my raw intake to 50-75% daily.

To do more deep-stretching and yoga to complement the running program I started last year. (Let's go Kristen!)

To finish my naturopathy course.

That should do for now...Happy New Year everyone!

What naturopathy course are you taking and how far along are you?

I'm going to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, starting in a few weeks! Very exciting!

Hi Michelle - I'm taking Trinity College of Natural Health's naturopathy course and I love it. I have about 6-8 more classes to finish and then about 4 two day seminars.

Good luck on starting your course - you will love it!
