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
