Wednesday Goal Routines to Consider
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle
If you want to change your life, you must change your habits. With your already hectic schedule, accomplishing your future goals can be challenging. I believe that goals should be broken down into small routines that are achievable—one step at a time, one day at a time, by adding routines to your daily schedule. Think about the goals you want to achieve for the year, and then get creative and start incorporating them into your daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly routine. Here are some Wednesday goal routines to consider.
Water Wednesday (Health Goals): Dehydration can result in fatigue and mental fogginess, which can hinder your motivation. Before doing extensive mental or physical work, try drinking a glass of ice cold water. This will help to keep you replenished. Continue to drink plenty of water throughout the day. One glass won’t be enough to keep you hydrated. Water Wednesday is a day to concentrate on drinking water only. With this routine, you can at least expect hydrating well once a week.
Workout Wednesday (Health Goals): Because of so many challenges involved with working out, the best way to go is to start simple. Designate at least ten to thirty minutes of lightweight exercises that will strengthen you to do more. Try walking around the block or in your backyard. There are many exercises that can be done without equipment, such as, stretching, jumping jacks, push-ups, sit-ups, etc. This will help you to develop a routine for working out.
Watch your words. If you’re in the habit of putting yourself down or belittling your abilities (even in a joking manner), stop it! You may not think it matters, and in fact, you may think it’s funny to make fun of yourself, but these messages get embedded into your subconscious and they will influence you eventually. Instead, start building yourself up with positive talk, even if it feels strange at first. Keep affirming that you can accomplish anything you wish, even if you aren’t yet great at it.
Wall of Fame Wednesday: One excellent way to motivate yourself is to read success stories about people who have accomplished what you are trying to accomplish. Whether you’re trying to lose a few pounds or write the next great American novel – there is probably someone out there who has done it. Do an internet search for “(your objective) success stories” and see what comes up. Also, search for Internet forums where you can chat with others who are working toward a similar goal.
Take a Walk Wednesday — Walking is a great exercise for everyone and every age. There’s nothing complicated to learn about walking, and you don’t need fancy equipment. If you can walk, you can do this!
