GET STARTED

  • Plan your PHIT:  The first step is to choose a theme

       that aligns with your personal wellness needs. You

       can pick from the top 10 list (below) or design your

       own. Next you will create a SMART goal to ensure

       success. This includes assuring your idea is Specific

       enough to know each day that you have completed it.

       Your goal need also be Measurable, and you will have

       the opportunity to set and monitor 2 metrics; first a

       process measure – that will confirm completion and

        second, an outcome measure that will help you

       demonstrate your achieved results. Your goal should

       also be Achievable and Relevant and you will have

       the opportunity to rank your confidence and

       importance respectively to determine each of these.

       I suggest if either ranking is less than 6,  that you

      save this goal for later and identify another need with which you are currently motivated to prioritize and change. Lastly, setting a time 

      frame for your goal will increase the likelihood of success. I suggest starting TODAY and continue for a minimum of 21 days. The

      MyPHIT tool is set up to run 30 day cycles. (Under Workshop Handouts, there is a hard copy of the PHIT handout with examples of each

      of the SMART components).

  • Track and Assess your PHIT: You will be given the opportunity to record your success and challenges Daily for the next 30 days. To foster your successful completion, you will receive an email reminder with a link to go directly to your project and document. If you forget to track, you can document any missed days by simply reset the date after you complete the metrics. You can also view your “days completed and average outcome metrics
