Contemplating a Fibro Health Plan
Does the thought of creating goals for the New Year make you cringe? Sometimes, dealing with the symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic illness can generate the feeling of defeat before we even begin.
Creating goals doesn’t have to be painful.
I’ve read studies that show that New Year’s resolutions are beneficial. I’ve also seen ones that report the exact opposite. It obviously depends on what goals were studied and how they were implemented. It also depends on the author’s intent. Sometimes articles contain headlines and content purposely chosen to be contrarian.
That’s not the purpose here. The purpose of this article is to simplify the issue of goal-setting and provide actionable tips.
The first key point is that whether you call them goals, plans, or resolutions, it’s still important to create them. We’ve all heard a variety of adages similar to a goal without a deadline is just a wish.
Without a plan, how do you know where you want to go?
I think of goals as our own personal road map to our desired future. Notice that I emphasize that they point us toward the future that we desire. Going in the direction of where we want to go rather than bumping along in reaction to our circumstances provides completely different results.
Another old adage comes to mind. Lewis Carroll said, “if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.”
Do you want to take just any road?
