READY TO GET STARTED?
Step 1 – Think of a habit that would improve your chances for a healthier lifestyle. Now, in the space below, state the habit as a goal to pursue during the Wellness Warrior Challenge. For example, your personal goal statement may read, “By January 21, 2019, I will be walking at least 2 miles on each of five days a week.” Note that your goal statement will be specific to the habit you wish to begin developing and focused on results that are both realistic and attainable in the twenty-one days allotted.
|Personal Goal Statement:
Step 2 – Create a Personal Wellness Plan by entering the tasks to complete during the three-week challenge in the Planning and Tracking Form.
PLANNING AND TRACKING FORM
|3 Week (21 day) Commitment
Name: ___________________ Start Date:_______
|Place a checkmark in the status column next to a completed daily task. Do check next to uncompleted tasks.
Create a similar chart for yourself to track your progress during Week 2 and 3.
Step 3 – Work the Plan and Track Progress by placing a checkmark in the box to the left of each task listed on the Planning and Tracking Form. Also, log any difficulties met while performing a task, reasons for not finishing a task, notes of encouragement, or changes to the plan. Are all the boxes checked? If so, then…
Congratulations. YOU DID IT! You completed the Wellness Warrior Challenge. You set a goal, committed to it, and carried it through to completion.
Keep in mind, it often takes longer than three-weeks to acquire a habit. You may, therefore, decide to continue working your plan until the desired behavior becomes automatic: a habit. It’ll be worth it because, such modes of behavior, which you have proven capable of constructing, are the foundation on which healthy lifestyles are built. So, stay with it and enjoy the benefits for a lifetime.
