The Habit Must Be Realistically Attainable
Sometimes setting goals can be frustrating. Large or long-term goals might make you feel like you haven’t achieved anything, which is why many individuals quit before they meet their goals. This is why when you want to start a new healthy habit, the habit must be realistically attainable. Smaller, more achievable goals give you little victories that can give you the confidence boost to eventually reach those larger goals in the long term. For instance, if you want to lose weight, don’t start with a goal of shedding fifty pounds in a month. Instead, set a smaller weight loss goal you can more easily reach so you don’t feel discouraged.
