December Newsletter: Holiday Healthy Goals

Holiday Healthy Goals
The holiday season gives us a chance to celebrate the year and past traditions and look with hope for the coming year. As we approach the start of 2023, you may be thinking of New Year's resolutions you would like to set for yourself. Consider setting a healthy goal for 2023.

S: Set goals that are specific to have a place to start and know where you are going.
M: Your goals should be measurable so you can track your progress.

R: Make your goal relevant so that it aligns with broader goals to keep you motivated.
T: Goals should be time-based to keep focused and accountable.
