Word Association

Posted: December 6, 2011 in Goals, Healthy Living, Resolutions

Let’s play a little word association game…

I am going to say a word, and I want you to say the first thing that comes to mind.

Ready?

I say healthy…you say_____?

So what came to mind? Maybe you thought of diet, exercise, skinny, or even uggg. The point is that healthy is too general and can conjure up so many words and images, but the important factor is what does it REALLY mean to YOU?

Have you ever set a goal for yourself to get healthier?
What did that look like?
How did you know when you achieved that goal?

Many of us would like to think we are healthy already and then there are those of us that want to begin that process. So it’s time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves if we really know what good health is, or if we’re on the right track. What one person thinks of good health may be very different from what another thinks. The holiday season is upon us!!! Now is typically a time when we begin assessing the goals we set for us when the New Year began and whether or not we managed to see them to fruition. Many will repeat the pattern of setting new resolutions and more often than not, this includes some aspect of getting healthy.

If you DREAM this then you have got to DEFINE it.

Lose weight – how much?
Bring the blood pressure down?
Get off certain medications?

Whatever the goal may be, you need to be specific so that you know when you have reached it. Next step is to DO it!

What are you waiting for?
What is holding you back?

DREAM it…DEFINE it…DO it! 1, 2, 3…

Let me ask you again…I say healthy… you say_______?
