Setting Goals

Setting goals and action plans. For example, Tuesday PM - you could write an activity plan for the following day.

Set yourself, simple, realistic goals or action plans.

Just as you need goal posts when playing football, or a finishing line when racing - you need something to aim for.

Perhaps, you could set yourself a simple hourly, daily or weekly action plan. Always ask for help from your health care professional if you are not sure.

You can also learn more about setting goals and action planning when you attend a self management programme (SMP) - See below for more information for attending an SMP class.

Self Management Programmes (SMP)

These are run in the community by highly trained tutors who also have health conditions (including pain) themselves but have learned to become good self managers. SMP’s are run by Arthritis Care called Challenging Arthritis and the Expert Patients Programme.
