How to set effective wellness goals

Steps to set effective wellness goals and stick to them!

By Carla Smith – The Fitness Expert

1. Be specific and clear about what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it!


What: I want to lose 15kgs or I want to live a healthier lifestyle

Why: I want to be fit, healthy and increase my self-esteem

2. Write down the steps that you will need to take


– Start exercising 3 x week for 30 minutes
– Start a healthy eating plan
– Find the correct supplements to boost your plan


3. Set a realistic timeframe for each goal

It takes at least 12 weeks to see major changes in the body. If you change your habits, follow a healthy eating plan and do some exercise, it is very realistic to lose 2kg every two weeks.

4. Break your goals down into smaller goals


– I want to lose 4kg in 4 weeks

– I want to lose 4cm from my stomach in 6 weeks

5. Set rewards for goals that you have accomplished


– If I exercise for 30min 3x week for 1 month, I can purchase a new pair of shoes

– If I stick to my healthy eating plan for 6 days during the week, I can reward myself with a cheat meal on the 7th day.
