You probably already know something about goal setting. After all, you can set goals for almost every part of your life. We have goals for work, for our money, and for our lifestyle. A goal can be as simple as deciding to clean your bathroom or as complex as creating a savings plan to buy a house.
What if we told you that you can also set goals for your mental health? Building strong mental health is a lifelong journey. You don’t have to be struggling to set goals for yourself.
Some examples of areas you can set goals for are:
- Increasing self-care
- Setting boundaries
- Maintaining relationships
- Building self-esteem
- Creating strong routines
- Processing memories
Setting SMART Goals
You can set yourself up to achieve your goals by setting SMART goals. SMART goals are your roadmap to success. They form a solid plan for achieving your goal in a timely and realistic way.
Building Your Support Team
Everything is easier with a little bit of help. No matter how big or small your goals are, you deserve a team to support you. You deserve to surround yourself with people who cheer you on and hold you accountable.
Your support team can include a variety of people. You can share your goals with friends, family members, and colleagues. The people you include should care about you. They should be encouraging, and supportive of your goals.
You can also access professional support, such as seeing a psychologist. Psychologists are the experts in achieving your mental health goals. They can provide you with one-on-one coaching to help you stay on track and skills and tools to help you along the way.
