Our buds over at Be Well Philly were talking about this article in Shape this week, so we took a look, and found it to have a really interesting way of thinking when it comes to tackling your goals. And the thing is, the method they out absolutely applies to your various wedding-day goals, whether they’re weight-loss/fitness-focused or otherwise.

The basic idea is this: By really coming up with and concentrating on the more deeply rooted reason behind your goals, you’ll probably come up with better ways to meet them—and will therefore be more likely to actually reach your goals, and then stick with your gained good habits, whatever they may be, after that point. The approach is called the “design thinking” philosophy.
