Kibworth Osteopaths – Good News & S.M.A.R.T Goals

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you had a joyous Christmas and you’re feeling refreshed.

January is often a time for goal setting, so I thought I would offer some top tips for those of you setting physical goals for your health and body. I use S.M.A.R.T Goals in the clinic and with my Pilates clients – and they work well.

S.M.A.R.T breaks down into:
S – Specific – streamline your goal.
M – Measurable – how are you going to measure your achievements? I recommend a stepping stone approach – you may need to achieve ‘smaller goals’ to reach your ‘end goal’.
A – Achievable – make your goal attainable, not impossible.
R – Realistic – Be aware of your limitations – failure to do this could lead to injury.
T – Time based – over what time scale do you want to achieve your goal? Bigger challenges often have more steps on the way – allow yourself the time! If you are working to a specific date, make sure you have a schedule – this also boosts your morale as you achieve the steps on the way to the end goal.

Having goals or a plan has been proven to help maintain focus and help us achieve the goal.
Whether walking unaided around the block or running a marathon, I am here to help you reach those goals.

With hands-on treatments, tailor-made exercise programmes, over 12 years of experience, and a refusal to see you quit, I will be by your side every step of the way, encouraging you and celebrating with you when you smash it!
