After having my twins, it has been hard to get back into the groove of self-care. So much of my time has gone to ensuring my family is well cared for and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Yet, in the long run I truly know that when I am the best version of myself this translates to every aspect of my life. Something that I try to do is set goals for myself to help me achieve my happy place of self-love.
I partnered with Secret to help drive awareness about their Clinical Strength deodorant, as they are a brand that is focused on helping women take action, be proactive, demand more, and achieve what they deserve. I have used Secret Deodorant since high school and it helps me stay dry through any obstacles that comes up when I try to achieve my goals. That’s because it offers faster, extra effective protection from unexpected sweat. See how I set my goals and stick to them below:
- Self-evaluate: Are you being the best version of yourself? This self-reflecting can actually be the hardest step, especially since we live in the digital world of social media where you can easily spend your time comparing yourself to others. So dig deep, and ask yourself are you being the best wife, mother, friend, business owner, daughter?
- Set benchmarks: How are you going to measure your goal? For me it is less about hitting a certain “number”, but more about creating the habit. For instance, instead of losing 10 pounds, I will set a goal of going to the gym 5 days a week.
3. Find a partner: I find that setting a goal with someone else holds me more accountable in attaining my goals. For example, I might have a friend meet me at the gym.
4. Remember it takes time: There are scientific studies that show a habit takes about 21 days to form, and only a few days to break. So stick with it, remember that you are working on the best version of you and you will succeed!
