Many people probably have a problem that Intend to exercise seriously But he couldn't do it once Sometimes done for a while then aborted Or some people do and then feel discouraged. Dr. Chowapon Kit Hirankul (Dr. Art) and Dr. Ornakon Inkongng (Doctor Om) from DOCTORVIP suggest how to set exercise goals that are called That SMART Goal Setting slot
SMART Goal Setting consists of
S = Specific. Specify to be specific that What kind of exercise would be done, such as running, walking, swimming, boxing, playing magic, and going to yoga?
M = Measurable. Can specify quantity to be able to measure. Both in terms of intensity and duration, such as running at medium intensity for 30 minutes a day
A = Attainable. Determine what you can do and suit you, such as never exercising before. Should set short goals as easily as starting with walking Who has never walked for a long time Started setting up goals only 10 minutes before If the time limit is reached, gradually increase to 30-50 minutes until we exercise up to 150 minutes per week. According to recommendations
R = Relevant defines activities that will suit our long-term goals, such as wanting to lose weight. May choose to set goals in cardio exercise first To burn fat Lose a little weight to cheer And then add other types of exercise goals to follow, but if anyone is physically fit but depends on the lean mass Started to burn badly May choose to target the weight training first
T = Timely clearly specify the duration, how many minutes, which days and how many months, for this goal, for example, will walk 30 minutes every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday for 3 months. If the 3rd month has been completed We then continue to increase our goals. Setting short-term goals Makes us able to reach the goal easily As a result, we are encouraged to continue to do more difficult goals later. Because we will feel challenged every time we set new goals. However, the goals that we set should not be too easy. Or too difficult Many times we feel that we fail to exercise. May be because the goal that we set may be too far away.
SMART Goal Setting Aside from being useful for setting fitness goals, Can also be used to adjust other health behaviors, such as diet planning or weight control, and will find that setting good goals is an important point in achieving good health without difficulty.
