Providing support for someone else’s journey to a healthier lifestyle can be difficult, touchy ground. The person has to be motivated and willing, but everybody needs inspiration at some point. You want to help them keep going when the going gets rough!
The most helpful things you can do are listen, lead by example, and make it fun or enjoyable. Working out and adjusting to carrots after a lifetime of pizza is rough. Challenging each other to make the tastiest, healthiest meal can put a whole new spin on a healthy lifestyle. We even have plenty of recipes for you to try like pecan crusted tilapia and avocado egg salad!
