Goal Setting for 2016

Before it's time to ring in the New Year take some time to start thinking of your future and set goals to achieve the life you desire. Why should you set goals:

  • Allows you to think of your desired future and get excited. It also helps clarify what you really want—which most people don't actually know.
  • Causes you to make long term improvements, lifehacks.org describes this as structual improvements that are required for your goal to come to fruition.
  • Planning big allows you to see the potential in each day and start accounting for the present moment seeing how each action and choice can move you closer to your goals.
  • Goal setting helps your identify and confront beliefs and behaviours you desire to change, developing powerful habits for the future.

 

Set SMART goals. They are:

Specific—concise with no justification required.

Motivating—your goals should inspire you to do the work.

Attainable—break down a large goal into smaller actions to be accomplished

Relevant and Realistic—use affirmative language to write what you will accomplish, not what you'd like to avoid.

Trackable—your goals should be measureable. Also try using date (incuding month and year) to keep your accountable.

 

Set goals in the following areas:

1. Physical     2. Mental     3. Emotional     4. Relationships

5. Work     6. Home     7. Social     8. Financial

 

  • In a 1979 study on Harvard MBA graduates it was found that 3% had goals they had written down. 13% had goals but had not written them down and 84% did not have specific goals. Ten years later, the 13% with goals earned twice as much as the 84% without. The 3% who had written down their goals earned ten times as much. Little hinges swing big doors!
  • Goal set as a team. Sit down with your partner and/or kids and write down specific goals. Seal them in an envelope and then revisit them next December. Be clear in your mind about how to achieve your goals and then let the subconscious brain provide.

Use the goal sheet in this newsletter to set  your goals! In January share one of your goals with us for a chance to win a price! Details in the New Year.

Change Your Diet: Why Low-Fat Diets Don't Contribute to Lifelong Weight Loss

A low-fat diet feels like a natural choice for losing weight, but completely eliminating certain nutrients over time may not be the answer. In fact, one study concluded that low-fat diets did not have a greater impact on weight loss than diets with higher fat contents. Of the 68,000 participants studied, low-carb diets revealed a similar average weight loss to low-fat diets, showing only a 2.5 pound increase in loss. Over time, nutrient-restricting diets like these tend to drop off after the first year, leading to little or no results. So what goes wrong?Any diet that requires the elimination of nutrients, like fat, needs to fill that void with a healthy substitute to help maintain long-term weight loss. Unfortunately, many low-fats diet programs fill that void with snacks stuffed with sodium and sugar. This can decrease the physical and mental endurance needed to sustain a successful low-fat diet over time. That's why it's important for any nutrient-restricting diet to include a healthy serving of fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and minerals. This can help provide the energy and mental focus needed to sustain a successful diet over the long-term.

Why Fruit & Veggie Consumption in Young People is Important for Long-Term Health

Young people are notoriously picky about eating fruits and vegetables, but a diet packed with at least 4 servings of fruits and vegetables per day can preserve long-term cardiac health. While plenty of research on this subject has been done on the older adult population, little research was available for the 18 to 30 demographic until the CARDIA study at the Minneapolis Heart Institute. This study narrowed in on the problem of Coronary Artery Calcium, or CAC, in this age group since CAC analysis helps doctors determine if a patient is more at risk of heart failure. Starting in 1985, this program studied the fruit and vegetable intake of over 5,000 people in a 20-year period. At the conclusion of the study, participants were asked a series of questions about their dietary habits and went under CAC tomography scanning to determine the levels of artery calcium buildup. The study divided the participants into two groups; the first group had a high fruit and vegetable intake of 7 to 8 servings, and the second group had a lower intake of just 2 to 3 servings of fiber per day. Using data collected from interviews and CAC scans, researchers discovered that people with eating habits like those in the first group were less at risk of developing a CAC condition by 26%.

Ditch the Cola: How Your Favorite Sodas Can Lead to Heart Failure

Sugary sodas may feel like the perfect thirst quencher, but prolonged soda consumption can actually have serious consequences in the long run. Over time, studies have shown increasing links between soda consumption and the risk for high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and even heart problems. In fact, one Swedish study observed the soda consumption of 42,000 men over the course of 12 years. There were roughly 3,600 new cases of heart failure during the 12-year long study, and it concluded that men who regularly drank two or more servings of soda per day had a 23% greater risk of experiencing heart failure in their lifetime.  Women are strongly advised to ditch the soda as well. Long-term soda consumption in women has been strongly linked to a rise in insulin problems, high blood pressure, obesity, and type-2 diabetes, all of which are triggers for major heart problems. Heart failure occurs when the heart does not have the strength to pump enough oxygen and blood. 23 million people across the globe already deal with heart failure, and it will only continue to worsen with the regular consumption of processed foods, sodium, and sugary beverages like soda.
