GOAL: Let’s create healthy connections!

We are social creatures. No matter how independent or introverted you are, you still need actual human connection. This doesn’t just mean having people you spend time with, it means having people you spend time with you make you feel seen, heard, and supported.

Do you have at least one person in your life that you feel supported by?

As in you can reach out to them if you are having a tough time, they encourage you to take healthy risks and try new things?

  • If yes, that is awesome! How do you make time to keep this connection close?
  • If no, here are some ways to try to change that…

We naturally surround ourselves with people who reflect our lifestyle choices. This can be tough when we decide to work on being healthier, as the people in our current circle don’t always share the same desires or values.

Ask yourself if the people you spend time with have the same interests or desires as you. If they don’t, where can you find people that do? You need to work on finding a community. For many other folks who are Community Fitnessters – we have found these connections and community at our Community Fitness gyms. For others, it may be a church, or a group of people with the same hobby.
