Health and Leisure Goal Setting Pattern of Farm Families in Different Socio-Cultural Regions of Punjab

Pavneet Kaur [2] | Dr. Harsharan Kaur Gill

Abstract: The present study was undertaken to study the existing health and leisure goal setting pattern, assess the effect of socio-personal factors of the homemakers on the health and leisure goal setting pattern and explore the constraints in goal setting and attainment of farm families. Results revealed that overall goal setting pattern of farm families was quite erroneous (overall SMART percent score of 10.50) with Leisure goal setting per cent score of 9.45 and Health 11.55. It was further revealed that long term goal setting pattern of farm families was comparatively better (16.69 per cent) than mid-term (9.86 per cent) and short term (4.96 per cent) goal setting pattern as respondents were found to be wishful in the guise of long term goals and quite poor in organising efforts in the form of mid and short term goals directed towards long term goals. A positive but non significant relationship between the age (0.07), education (0.14), family type (0.08), family size (0.02) and family income (0.12) of the respondents and their goal setting pattern was found. Major constraint faced by the respondents while setting the goals was unaware about the concept of goal setting (97.66 per cent) and while achieving the goals was ambiguous goal, no role model to emulate, frustration due to successive failure in goal achievement and hopelessness due to persistent struggle with uncertainties (92.66 per cent).
