When you start a health journey it´s good to set up some goals that you want to reach. That will make you more motivated and more focused on staying on the right track. It will make you keep up and have the discipline you need.
Do you have a vision? Goals? Maybe this seems to be a weird question when it comes to health. Normally you ask this kind of questions when it comes to your personal development, your carrier or spiritual journey. But I think it´s good to ask yourself what your vision is. Or what your goals are when it comes to your health journey. Just give it a thought: What would you do if you could see yourself in a better health condition, let´s say one year from now? What would you like to do when you´re not forced to staying home from events, work and friends because your health just won´t let you have the freedom choosing what you want to do? What are your dreams? When you set your goal you can also put a deadline when you want to reach that goal, so you don´t let your dreams wait forever. Here are some areas you can set your goals to get started. A goal should be like a dream, a wish. Try not to think what your abilities are today, let your dreams become your goals!
Maybe you´ll come up with more!
That´s obvious, right? I think the first thing that comes up for most women with endometriosis is that they want to be free from pain. But think a little bit further. What else would you like to achieve when it comes to your health? Stopping eating painkillers, getting rid of other symptoms like back pain, headache, fatigue? Being able to exercise more, starting dancing, hiking? Start writing your goals and the dreams will just come up on the paper!
What would you like to change when it comes to yourself as a person? Maybe you want to be better at saying no. Standing up for yourself, being less shy, having more discipline doing things that are good for you? Stopping having fear of doing difficult and challenging things, telling more jokes, being less angry, less sensitive or more sensitive…
What are you doing today that is creative? Are you able to use your creativity in your life? When it comes to creativity many think it´s only about painting pictures or other artistic creativity. But it can be other things too! It can be house decorating, planting flowers and vegetables, writing, coming up with funny ideas that you can do with your family. Creativity is very good for your health! Have you been in that state when you´re doing something in a total focus so the time has just stopped? It can happen when you are doing something you really love and when you are in your creativity flow. It´s like your energy flows and it gives you a great feeling. In a moment like that it can even happen that you don´t feel your pain!
Well, many people stay at work like 8 hours a day, so it´s very important that you feel you are at the right place and are doing the right things. Maybe you´re totally satisfied with your job today, but if you´re not or if you want more development you can set some goals for your career. If you are not satisfied at all, it can be a good idea to really sit down and think what you want to do in your life. This is a huge thing, I know and maybe it is not the first thing on your list if your health is bad. The health is always the most important, but what you can do is to set a little bit longer deadline on the goals that have to do with your career. Some people have no idea at all what they want to do in life so this can be a little bit frustrating. No worries, this is a big and important issue that has to have an article of its own in the future!
