Goal Board

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

I work with very health-conscious people, who are waaaay more fit than I am. They also have normal, everyday struggles with food and exercise. They make daily decisions to choose health, adding in the occasional indulgence. Surrounding myself with healthy and supportive people is uber important, and the fact that they aren't super-human is even better.

At last month's staff meeting, we decided to encourage healthy habits by transforming our dry-erase board into a goal board. The board is called "Cheers to Your Health", and I broke out my washi tape and went to work:



I'm surprised at how motivating it is! Choosing just one goal a week sets me up for success. I kept the same goal to exercise 30 minutes a day for a couple of weeks, and updated it when that got easier. I've missed a few days, and even though I've been in a slump this past week, I'm still working on my goal. I'm an organizing, list-making nerd, and thinking about getting to check off that box gets me moving!

It's worked so well that we created a mini-version at home, which is helping my six year old remember to pick up her dirty clothes. And she sees her dad and I work toward health goals. But part of me thinks she gets a thrill out of checking the box, too. emoticon
