My priority is to schedule an appointment with my primary doctor to find out what is going on in my body. The best way to find out is a blood analysis test. These results will point me in the right direction in setting goals.
We need to schedule appointments with the following care providers:
- Primary Doctor: physical, mammogram, cervical exam, and renew prescriptions
Using the SMART method of setting goals they must be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. As a result, these are my goals and I hope that you may use these as an example to help you set goals for yourself.
1. Drink six-eight ounces of Water Daily
Specifically, to help flush out toxins from the bladder, aid in digestion and absorption preventing constipation, aids in circulation by normalizing blood pressure, prevent dry mouth thus producing saliva, transports nutrients and oxygen to the body, lubricates joints and maintains body temperature. I can measure this goal by drinking water 30 minutes before eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It will also help lower food intake.
2. Stretch Body Daily Upon Rising
Doing so will keep the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. To test your flexibility, stand up straight, bend over, and touch your toes.
3. Eat Healthy Daily
I decided to follow the Keto lifestyle. This plan focuses on reducing sugar and carbohydrates. The primary doctor suggested using the Mediterranean or Dash meal plans. The tasks needed for this goal are to plan meals, create a shopping list based on my meal plan, and schedule cooking times. Maintaining a good body weight is important.
In conclusion, it’s best to take care of you first before helping others. Schedule your appointment today!
