Create Your Health Vision for Vision

Listen To a New Episode of The Diabetic Toolbox Podcast-Join the Community Don’t forget to follow us!

Spring is in the air; my question is, what is your health vision for spring?   If you struggle with a chronic illness, this can be a fun and exciting time to think about everything we hope to accomplish.

Not to get philosophical on you, but you cannot plot a course for your health or any area of your life without creating your vision.

In Habakkuk 2:2,” the prophet writes, “The LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” So your health vision is your unique way of seeing your medical goals become a reality.

Your vision for your health is the one thing you must articulate to your health team so that the plan of action is not only medically sounds but also answers the question, what do I want to accomplish? 

That is what we are going to talk about today!

When the summer arrives, what will you look back on and be able to say, “Great job- I’m really proud of me!”

Spring is a time of renewal to rethink the goals we would like to accomplish.  Maybe you set goals in January that you have not entirely completed.  Ask yourself, what health goal would I want to tackle this season?  

Write down your top 1-5 goals that you’d like to accomplish this season on a piece of paper.  Do not create a list that will overwhelm you or add more stress to your life.

Aim at creating simple, actionable goals, such as

  1. Drink 64 ozs of water each day
  2. Walk 30 minutes per day
  3. Take my medication as prescribed
  4. Go to bed at the same time each day
  5. Eat two fruits and vegetables each day

Next to each goal, write down what completing this goal will mean to your health.

Your challenge is to supercharge your goals and turn them into reality!  You can decide to conquer all five or attack your goals one at a time.  Consistency will be the key to your success.  This exercise might feel strange at first but do it anyway!  I promise it’ll be worth it!

Take a few minutes to think about how amazing you’ll feel as you accomplish everything on your list.  Then, really let yourself feel it all: proud, happy, grateful, amazed, and fulfilled!

Now, write yourself a letter, dated Tuesday, June 21st, the first day of summer, and in the letter, you will be congratulating yourself on your accomplishments.  

Tell yourself exactly why you’re proud of yourself for each one, and go into detail about how it has improved the quality of your life.   Post it everywhere you can, on your refrigerator, bathroom mirror, next to your computer.  This letter will be a visual reminder and encourage you when things get tough.

Feel free to update your vision as your health improves, and feel free to share your vision with your team; remember you are in charge, not your diagnosis.  You are your best advocate.

With Peace and Love,
