Why doing it together is always better

Did you know that according to USA Today, 57% of women and men say it would be helpful to them to partner with a friend or relative when trying to lose weight? One of the reasons a program like Weight Watchers is successful (at first) is that they create a community of like-minded people. A community aspect is crucial for success in any goal you have. We’re designed to live within communities, packs and tribes, it’s in our very DNA. Feeling alone or like you don’t have someone to turn to to pump you up, celebrate your successes or support you through the more challenging days, is likely what’s been missing along your path to health and happiness.

So, here are 3 tips on how you can create your own healthy community: [tweet this!]

  1. Have an accountability buddy. A colleague, a friend, a sister or a brother. Whether it’s The Rockstar Roadmap or a friend, having someone to check in with, support you and cheer you on is always more fun and more successful.
  2. State your goal or intention to the world. Don’t be afraid to put it out there. Post on Facebook that you’re going to the gym (it’s okay to be one of those people). Your friends will cheer you on. Get your goal out into the universe and it will keep you on track as you work towards it.
  3. Create a healthy book club with friends. If you already have a book club and the potluck happenings haven’t always been on the healthy side of the road, have a conversation with them about how this is something you’re working on and you would love their support! If you don’t have a book club, create one. You can keep it health focused and chose healthy living books (check out some of my favs here) and bring your favorite yummy healthy foods like these:

Spiced Chickpea Snackers
Sweet Potato Chips
Kale, Fennel, and White Bean Soup

You need a little more support, accountability and the RIGHT tools to make your health goals actually happen. I’m proud to say that the community of my Rockstar Roadmap peeps is the place to be and this is the last call to register! I’ve had so many amazing women jump in and I don’t want YOU to miss out.

You are not alone in this. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to find your own inner ROCKSTAR!
