Happy New Year !!! Well, it’s the second week of the new year and I’m here to see how you are doing on your health goals for you and your family.  Kids are back to school and it’s time to get back to a schedule.  Kids with ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, etc thrive on schedules so things will start to get back to normal this 2nd week in January.  Along with schedules, many people are striving to eat better and help their kids to eat better too.   What goals do you have for your family?  

When you are setting a goal, you want to make sure you hit your goals, so here’s a great way to do that.

Be Sure to Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals
The first tip about reaching your goals is actually focused on setting your goals. You want to make sure you set SMART goals to increase the likelihood of reaching them. SMART stands for:
Specific: Be specific about the health and wellness goals you want to reach.
Meaningful and Measurable: Think about why you want to achieve these health goals. What are ways in which you can measure your progress?
Attainable: What are specific steps you will take to achieve your goals?
Realistic and Relevant: Be realistic about the goals you set. Setbacks often occur because our goals are unrealistic.
Time-Bound: Give yourself a realistic amount of time to achieve your goals.

Sometimes we all need some help.  It’s important to have a support system.  A support system can be just one person, like a spouse, close friend or a health coach. A health coach, takes into account the whole person. They view your life and listen to your needs and challenges, identify what you need to be successful, and encourage you in your pursuit of health. That’s why we are called coaches; we hold you accountable and guide and direct you. My specialty is families who’s children have ADHD,  ADD, sensory processing disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, anxiety, and OCD.

If you have a child with ADHD, ADD, Sensory Processing Disorder, ODD, or OCD, I'd love to chat with you.  I have 3 coaching opportunities available and I'd love to hear your story.

 

Until next week,

Mary
