Did you make a New Year’s resolution for 2020? Maybe your aim is to have a healthier diet and get in shape. Or perhaps you know that it is time for you to quit smoking. Whatever your goals, be SMART about them, urges Kristen Gaylor Scarber, licensed counselor at the Balanced Living Counseling Center in Rome. As you work towards achieving your goals, remember the SMART acronym. Scarber asserts that goals for 2020 should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.
If you fall off the wagon at any point, Scarber assures that you can always get back on track. Give yourself some grace and enjoy that cheat day, then return to efforts to achieve your New Year’s resolutions.
