History of Refresh Your Goals Day
Did you know that setting goals has been a longstanding tradition dating back to the ancient Greeks, around 4,000 years ago? They believed setting goals was essential to achieving success and leading a fulfilling life.
Setting goals has been a powerful tool through time and has helped us become better versions of ourselves. From ancient cultures to modern times, we have used our ambitions and aspirations to shape and drive our lives forward. One of the most famous examples is Benjamin Franklin’s 13 Virtues, where he split his life into 13 different goals, from frugality to resolution. This timeless practice has been proven effective in reaching our objectives and finding fulfillment in life.
Albertsons + Safeway present Refresh Your Goals Day, a holiday that incentivises people to recommit to health and wellness goals. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, quit smoking, or generally live a healthier lifestyle, this day is an opportunity for us all to take time out of our busy lives and focus on our personal commitment to ourselves.
