Montana Moves January Challenge: It all starts with a Goal.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, but before you take a step, it helps to know where you’re going.  This month, your challenge is simply to make your health/fitness goals for 2013, write them down, and share.  You may have one big goal, or several smaller goals.  Your goals may focus on fitness, nutrition, overall wellness, work/life balance, etc.  Any health goals work.  Follow the suggestions for goal-setting by clicking on this link:  SMART Goal Setting.  Then simply share your goals by writing us at wellness@montana.edu and putting ‘January Moves’ in the subject of your email.  Goals are due by Monday, February 4th.  You’ll then be eligible for our end-of-month drawing*.  Your goals will be confidential, but anything we can do to help you achieve them in 2013 we will!
