Setting Smart Health Goals
Have you ever felt like you were working hard but weren't making any progress toward your goals? You're not alone. Most people feel that way each year around their time. They set goals, take a few actionable steps but never seem to accomplish very much. Often the problem isn't a lack of motivation- it's just that you haven't set smart goals. Smart health goals can help you clarify your thoughts, focus your efforts, use your time to your advantage, and increase your chances of not only achieving, but surpassing your expectations.
