Keeping each other accountable is often the best way to make a change in life. It is typical of human nature to set a goal and work towards it for a period of time but often get busy and not complete enough work to build a habit. The key is to find a partner, trainer, group of friends or team and make each other accountable for healthy living.
I refer to this aspect of training as a ‘social circuit’. As you continue to stay on track of your goals with another person it results in an easier chance of creating a habit. The cycle of working towards something together not only builds physical strength but mental strength as well.
Strength in mental health and resilience is important to our daily life. The connection between physical movement and mental health are purely another reason to challenge a friend and start moving. Life is too short to let our physical fitness or mental health slow us down. With a ‘social circuit’ we can make the change by building the strength in numbers.
