Produced by Marden-based firm Water Wellbeing, the pack aims to give you ideas on why to make changes, where to start and how to follow them through to success and can be downloaded from their website for free.
A dedicated Facebook page has been set up for people to share their goals, find inspiration, seek motivation and report on progress. (Search 2012 Legacy)
The aim of the project, running throughout the great British summer of sport, is to piggy-back on the inspiration created by the Olympics and encourage people to harness the ambition, success and glory to kick-start their own changes and life improvements - not just relating to sport.
Water Wellbeing director Ben McGannan, said: "We all usually wait until New Year to make our pledges to change this, give up that and start doing something but as we all know, in those dark and gloomy January days, motivation is lacking to help us do them.
"The summer is a great time to be making changes, thinking about goals and getting out there and doing them.
"We all feel better in the summer and with this amazing Olympic haze still about, now is the perfect time to choose your goal, no matter how big or small and decide how you will achieve it.
"Just achieving small things can often make us feel more confident and gives us the motivation to carry on and look for more.
"So come and join us and join in with our Facebook community to share your goals too."
The toolkit gives details about how to set goals, by making a life picture - write down what you'd like to achieve in a year, five years and 10 years.
Then break it down into smaller chunks of time, writing down what you need to do to make it happen. You can set goals and call them bronze, silver and gold, then work towards achieving them, noting what distractions threaten or actually put you off-course and making sure they don't become hurdles to prevent you getting to the finishing line. You can always re-set your goals slightly if you do go off-course.
Once you've decided on your goals, join us on Facebook to let everyone know what they are. By sharing, you will feel a sense of commitment to them and by posting your progress, you will see how you are getting on and receive encouragement from the community to carry on. Ask your friends, family and Facebook contacts to like the 2012 Legacy page too, so they can see your progress and perhaps even join us!
You can post what you like - photos, videos, updates, messages to other 2012 Legacy friends, inspirational quotes, stories and motivational ideas.
You can ask for help, offer ideas and keep an eye on how other people are doing - but run your own race.
These goals are yours and so benchmarking on someone else's progress won't be useful to you!
Goals could include absolutely anything - why don't you post on the 2012 Legacy Facebook page to let us know what yours are and give everyone some ideas?
Goals could include:
Eating more fruit - decide how much you want to eat and when you will do it.
Lose weight - decide how much and when you can lose it safely whilst keeping healthy.
Exercise more - What exercise will you do and when? How will you fit it into your life.
Volunteer - decide how much time you realistically have, when you can do it and where you want to help.
Travel more - can you afford it, can you do it around work and family? If it's not the right time, you won't achieve your goals.
You could also:
Get up five minutes earlier each day - set your alarm every day and don't forget!
Get to bed by 10pm each night - be organised with your time and start winding down so you're ready for bed at 10pm. Do all those jobs need doing and emails read late in the evening?!
Eat an apple a day - make sure you have been to the shops to have them on your desk or at home
Read more - decide when you will have time in the day to do it and how much you can read. A chapter a day, a page a day, 10 minutes a day?
Text less - Does everything need an instant reply? Look at the phone once an hour rather than every time a text comes through. If it's important, they'll ring you...
Learn a skill – knitting, sewing, photography.
Call your mum more - decide when you can call and let her know to expect the call so you both have time to chat and catch up.
Join a club - If something interests you, there will probably be a club you can join to meet other like-minded people. See when they meet and make arrangements to go.
Start studying - Make sure you have the time to commit, or you'll be setting yourself up for failure.
Save money - just a bit each week, each month, or perhaps collect up £2 coins when you have them. You'll be surprised how quickly they mount up!
Have a spring clean - take it a step at a time - a drawer a week, a room ever two months. Make time to dispose of the stuff at the tip, recycling or charity shops in your clear-out timetable too, or the stuff you've cleared out will just sit in the garage or somewhere else!
Whatever it is you keep saying you’ll do, make 2012 the year to start it and by using the Your 2012 Legacy toolkit, you can keep on track and feel encouraged by your progress.
