Kidney Smart Goals: How to set goals and achieve them for CKD patients


Episode 136: Kidney Smart Goals: How to set goals and achieve them for CKD patients. When you have chronic kidney disease (CKD), setting smart goals is an important step in managing your health. Setting goals can guide you toward the change you want to make and help you move in a positive direction. Achieving your goals may help you feel better and will help you build confidence in your ability to manage your kidney disease. Areas for change that you might want to consider include nutrition, medications, physical activities, emotions, weight, and relationships.

Goal setting should be done very deliberately, thus there are a few things to keep in mind as you establish your goals. Start slowly and try to not overdo it as you will be more successful taking small steps. It is helpful to have both long term and short term goals. A long term goal is like the final destination of a journey. Once you have this goal, it becomes easier to set the short term goals that can help you reach that long term goal or destination.

It is important to set “SMART” goals. SMART stands for:

Specific – state exactly what you want to achieve
Measurable – how you will know you’ve met your goal
Attainable – every goal should be within reach
Realistic – consider your limitations
Trackable – record your progress to keep moving forward
