Sharing Healthy Goals

Sharing Healthy Goals

One of the best ways to stay on track with your healthy lifestyle is to tell your family, friends and coworkers about your health goals. If they know you’re trying to eat healthier options, such as whole grains instead of refined carbohydrates, they may try to be more supportive.

Family, friends and coworkers can also be a great support team when you’re trying to include more physical activity in your daily routine. Maybe a friend would love to walk with you in the mornings, or perhaps your kids would love to go for a swim together at night.

Ways to get family, friends, and coworkers to support you

  • Share facts about your condition
  • Tell them why you are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.
  • Ask them nicely to support your efforts.
  • Give them regular updates on your progress.
  • Set family rules

You can also invite them to:

  • Be active with you
  • Plan and shop for healthy meals with you
  • Cook and eat healthy food with you
