Setting a new goal means you are setting yourself up to succeed. Without goals, we lack focus and direction. Direction provides a destination to somewhere rather than moving through the motion. This will trigger new behaviours and motivation as you have something to work towards.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition of inflammation of the fascia ( a thick, fibrous band of tissue) that runs from your heel bone to your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Inflammation of the fascia can cause pain, a stabbing sensation, around the heel and arch of the foot. Overactive muscles, such as the gastrocnemius and soleus, can cause stress in the plantar fascia.
