Creating mental health goals is a great way to take charge of your wellbeing. Here are some tips for achieving the mental health goals you set for yourself.
A commonly used formula for working toward goals is the acronym SMART. This system provides a guideline for creating goals.
Creating SMART mental health goals helps ensure success. When you create deeply meaningful goals, achieving them is in your power. Some things to keep in mind:
· Be intentional what outcome do you want for yourself and your life, and why? How will things be different when you reach it?
· Create a plan that includes taking small steps toward your goal every day.
· Keep your wording positive—what you do want rather than what you don’t want.
