Don't Tackle Your Health & Wellness Goals Alone
Why having a support system is essential
We are influenced by the people we spend time with. Our thoughts, behaviors, and attitudes are significantly shaped by the people we surround ourselves with. Think about who you spend the most time with and how they impact your ability to reach your goals, especially when it comes to your health and wellness goals?
Adopting new lifestyle changes can be a challenge, which is why it’s important to have a strong and positive support system in your corner, cheering you on. Research shows that having family and friends who are supportive of your healthy eating and exercise goals improves your long-term weight-loss success.
It’s easy to get discouraged if your spouse, family, or close friends do not support the positive changes you’re trying to make for reasons that may include them not wanting to make similar changes or feelings of jealousy because you’re losing weight and look great. While this is disappointing, do not let their negativity affect you. Your dedication and progress may eventually influence them to join you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Many clients notice that it’s easier to stay on track by spending time with people who are focused on a healthy lifestyle. As you begin new activities, try to connect with new friends. Having someone to talk with and share your feelings of frustration and accomplishments is not only therapeutic but motivating.
Don’t tackle your goals alone. Our health coaches are also here to help you on your journey and to provide the support and knowledge you need to achieve your health and wellness goals.
