1. Look for win-wins
Try looking for activities that achieve more than one of your objectives, for instance if you would like to get fitter and to save money, cycling will both improve your fitness and can save on transport costs. Likewise, if you are someone who would like to get fitter and also widen their social circle join a club rather than exercising alone.
"Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now." Alan Lakein
2. Be curious
Every stage of our lives offers fresh opportunities. Whilst you might like to revisit old activities, how about exploring new ones?
3. Stretch not stress
As a guideline look for activities which are going to stretch you in some way but not ones that will be stressful.
4. How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time. If what you want ultimately to achieve seems too big, break it into smaller chunks so that each one is manageable.
Hopefully you are now coming up with all sorts of aims for improvements you could make. Our next posting will give you way of setting yourself targets and giving you the best chance of meeting them.
