Book Review: Declutter Your Mind

Declutter Your Mind by S.J. Scott and Barrie Davenport

This month we read DeClutter Your Mind : How to Stop Worrying, Relieve Anxiety, and Eliminate Negative Thinking. Some highlights we found helpful and wanted to share with you on CCAPS Corner!

Focus on Mindful Goal Setting

In this exercise the authors encourage us that when we sit down to think about our goals for the future, to incorporate both our "core values" and "life priorities" and to make sure they are realistic and achievable. This may be done by the applying the Strategy known as S.M.A.R.T. goals. 

SMART Goals

To assist in achieving your immediate goals that are in line with your values and priorities, ask yourself if each goal is S.M.A.R.T, which stands for: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.  By determining if your goals are S.M.A.R.T, you will be better equipped to set up an action plan and accomplish your goals.  It is also important to check-in with yourself about every 3 months, in order to assess if your goals are still valid.
